Shared reading is an opportunity to support your language learners with all they need to become proficient readers. Research shows that students who are learning a new language need content and language instruction to be integrated and meaningful.
During this edWebinar, you’ll explore the ways you can support phonics, vocabulary, and language while at the same time supporting your students’ literacy growth. Introduce your students to a variety of genres and forms with the support they will need and also teach your students the strategies to read a variety of genres.
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of all levels. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
About the Presenter
Enid Martinez worked for more than a decade at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project under the leadership of Lucy Calkins in New York City. Prior to that she was trained by Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell as a literacy coordinator for Literacy Collaborative. Enid’s heart grew to the literacy work and the focus on English Language Learners during the more than 10 years she was a bilingual and mainstream classroom teacher. These experiences have shaped her philosophy. Enid believes in supporting schools that believe it is possible for all children to become readers and writers. Leading workshops, providing on-site professional development and teaching at beginning and advanced institutes across the country in both English and Spanish are just a part of what Enid brings to the educational community. Enid is a sought-after presenter and regularly fields requests from a wide range of audiences.
