Emergent bilingual students need different academic supports and structures than their monolingual peers, and many educators have to rely on instructional models designed for students who already speak English—leading to a disconnect for our ELL students. Ensuring all emergent bilingual and multilingual students have access to a quality education first requires defining what that education looks like.
Lexia Learning’s Cassandra Wheeler (Director of LETRS State Success) and Breanna Guzman (Senior Language Product Specialist) with Dr. Linda Cavazos (Executive Director of ELLAS Consulting) and Martha Hernandez (Executive Director of Californians Together) broke down what a quality education for emergent bilinguals looks like, diving deeper into how second languages are learned, where and how that learning occurs, and how teachers themselves learn and develop as expert professionals.
In this session, listeners gain understanding of the value oral discourse brings to literacy learning, how to implement effective ELD practices across districts, schools, and classrooms, and useful resources for creating language frames on a practical level.
This edWeb podcast is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, ELL and ESOL specialists, librarians, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
