English Language Learners (ELLs) are the fastest-growing student population in our country, and these students deserve to be supported throughout their learning process – especially when it comes to reading and writing. In this research-fueled session, learn how leveraging targeted and embedded scaffolds as part of a differentiated instruction approach can dramatically accelerate language and literacy gains for ELLs at every stage of English acquisition. Marisa Russo, M.Ed., Executive Director, EL Development and Early Literacy Instruction, at Achieve3000, shares:

  • Critical scaffolds for ensuring mastery of foundational literacy skills such as phonics and fluency
  • Proven strategies for supporting vocabulary development across the content areas
  • Tips for using consistent language and frequent visual aids to support comprehension skills
  • Ideas for providing ongoing opportunities for listening and speaking to ensure students are able to express their ideas and opinions

With the right supports and opportunities for engagement, ELLs can become successful, lifelong readers and writers. Together, we can help EL students – from beginner to advanced – overcome barriers and raise the educational attainment, career prospects and prosperity of future generations. All K-12 educators, administrators, librarians, and literacy leaders are invited to watch this recorded edWebinar.
