Supporting English Learners With Close Reading – FREE WEBINAR

Please join experts from the Center for English Language Learners at American Institutes for Research (AIR) to learn more about how teachers can provide instruction to help English learners (ELs) master core content in English language arts.

This series of three 1-hour webinars features an approach called Attaining Core Content for English Language Learners (ACCELL), developed by Dr. Diane August and a team of AIR experts with decades of experience in developing research-based effective literacy interventions for ELs. This series is an encore of webinars first presented in 2015.

Each webinar focuses on a different topic. The first session will address background knowledge; the second, vocabulary; and the third and final, interactive reading strategies. The presentations include research-based pedagogical methods and concrete ideas for teachers to successfully support ELs in meeting college- and career-ready standards, with a focus on reading literature.

The webinars conclude with time for participants to ask questions and to engage in a discussion about implications and implementation.

These webinars will be recorded to accommodate your busy schedule; however, you must register in order to receive the link to the recording following delivery.
