Emergent bilingual and English language learners are sometimes grouped as if they have the exact same needs and supports. Yet, as many educators are keenly aware, there’s not a “one-size-fits-all” approach to tailoring instructional support for English language learning.
How can educators better support experienced multilinguals (also known as long-term English learners or LTELs), dual-language learners, newcomers, and students with limited or interrupted formal education (SLIFE)?
Lexia Learning’s Breanna Guzman (Senior Language Product Specialist) facilitates a panel discussion featuring Dr. Lizzy Cashiola (Associate Director of Regional Research, Houston Education Research Consortium, Rice University), Andrea Bitner (ELL Educator, Author, and Speaker, Interboro School District), and Dr. José Viana (Senior Education Advisor, Lexia Learning) to discuss these student groups while considering the approaches, insights, and perspectives to support multilingual students with different and important characteristics.
In this session, listeners learn the context and importance of asset-based labeling and terminology, research findings related to the specific needs of these student groups, and what schools can do to help better engage families of students learning English.
This edWeb podcast is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, ELL and ESOL specialists, librarians, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
