English learners are doing double duty in schools compared to their monolingual peers—not only are they learning to speak a new language, but they’re also trying to learn academic content in English, often through reading.
Understanding the best practices for emergent bilingual reading instruction can help students achieve academic success in their new language—and the Science of Reading has answers for how to best implement instruction in the classroom. Lexia Learning’s Cassandra Wheeler (Director of LETRS State Success), Dr. José Viana (Senior Education Advisor), and Breanna Guzman (Senior Language Product Specialist) with Tan Huynh (Teacher, Author, Podcaster, and Consultant) and Beth Skelton (Educational Consultant) dug deep into what’s different about teaching reading to multilingual learners.
In this session, listeners learn about incorporating instruction based on the Science of Reading for emergent bilingual and multilingual students, practical strategies (including how to prioritize both language and literacy development), and the importance of culturally and linguistically responsive pedagogy, grounded in an asset-based approach.
This edWeb podcast is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, ELL and ESOL specialists, librarians, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
