Many English learners lack opportunities to develop the sophisticated, abstract, academic vocabulary necessary to support reading, writing, and discussion of the academic topics covered in school. This can, and frequently does, lead to struggles with complex texts that are loaded with abstract content and academic vocabulary. The State Standards for English Language Arts require that students acquire grade-appropriate general academic and domain-specific vocabulary, and use these words accurately. This provides a window of opportunity for English learners and their teachers because building academic vocabulary is now a key part of the core curriculum. The goal of this course is to offer educators specific, evidence-based recommendations that address the challenge of teaching English learners in the elementary and middle grades: building their English language proficiency while simultaneously building literacy, numeracy skills, and content knowledge of social studies and science. The course provides practical and coherent information on critical topics related to literacy instruction for English learners. Participants will receive many examples of how to implement the recommended strategies as well as graphic organizers to guide students through the lessons.

This one-of-a-kind workshop guides educators looking to include more authentic, accurate, and complete histories of Black Americans, the African Diaspora, and more into their standard curriculum! This workshop is presented through a lens of rethinking the way we teach about Black histories; revamping the curriculum we use to instill Black critical knowledge; and revitalizing a love, respect, and positive affirmation of Black peoples throughout the nation and the world! Participants will walk away with increased knowledge and understanding of the diversity of the African Diaspora and how to create dynamic Black historical experiences for students which include not only the history of oppression, but Black agency, resilience, and JOY! Participants will also leave with a wealth of resources to help them not only teach their students about Black history but through Black history.
Session Themes: Black history, ethnic studies
