Making Content Comprehensible, Grades K-12
Maria Dantas-Whitney, Ph.D.
Professor, ESOL/Bilingual Education
Coordinator, Bilingual Teacher Scholars Program
Western Oregon University
Audience: Teachers grades K-12
This session will focus on literacy/language development across the content areas. When students use language actively to work through content, they store information in long-term memory and they are able to apply what they learn to different contexts and situations. A focus on academic vocabulary, language functions, and structures helps students develop a robust understanding of the topics they are studying. As you know, research has shown that sheltered strategies that are designed for ELs can benefit all students because they emphasize hands-on learning, collaboration, critical thinking, and deep exploration of content.
