In this webinar (which originally aired on November 1, 2016), Amber McWilliams (PreK–5 ELL Specialist, Amplify. Certified WIDA Prime V2 correlator) provides a variety of evidence-based strategies for supporting ELLs in the classroom, and discusses how all teachers can engage ELLs by using real-world content to provide authentic opportunities.
Listen to Amber explain how to create opportunities in the classroom for genuine communication and interaction, as opposed to only tasks that are specifically written for the purposes of language learning.
"What we’re trying to do here is both critical for students in terms of helping them understand what they need, and really effective in terms of educating and motivating them in the early literacy process."
