Strategies for Elementary Integrated and Designated ELD

An EPiCC Summer Series Offering - Limited Space! Register Soon!

How can teachers easily and effectively build language proficiency for their English learner/emergent bilingual students throughout their daily lessons? 

This interactive three-day in-person summer series provides teachers with a construct and set of strategies that can be effectively integrated into existing lessons and practices. Aligned to Principle 2 of the English Learner Roadmap and the English Learner Toolkit of Strategies, participants will learn to effectively identify and address the strengths and needs of English learner/emergent bilingual students by providing targeted scaffolds and supports. Participants will develop strategies to actively engage students in all four language domains (listening, reading, speaking and writing), deepening students’ use of sophisticated academic language and tapping into their linguistic genius. Teachers will be prepared with tools and resources to implement in their classrooms. 

All attendees will receive a hard copy of the English Learner Toolkit of Strategies.

Note: This event is geared toward elementary educators; however, the concepts could be valuable to secondary teachers and coaches seeking a deeper understanding of ELD. A light breakfast and lunch will be offered for each day of this series.

Your confirmation to attend will be required.

Foundational Literacy Skills for Multilingual-English Learners (TK-3rd)

An EPiCC Summer Series Offering - Limited Space! Register Soon!

How can we support the development of foundational literacy skills for our diverse multilingual-English learner students? 

It  is critical to adapt instructional practices to meet the unique needs and characteristics of multilingual-English learners (MLL-ELs). This event will specifically address strategies to intentionally support MLL-EL students with phonological/phonemic awareness and phonics skills while simultaneously fostering the development of both expressive and receptive language. Aligned to Principle 2 of the English Learner Roadmap, participants will learn to effectively identify and address the strengths and needs of MLL-EL students in support of foundational literacy development. Learn concrete strategies to assess the phonological/phonemic awareness needs for decoding and encoding, recognize opportunities for cross-linguistic transference and oral language development, and acquire instructional practices to intentionally strengthen the foundational literacy of multilingual learners. All attendees will receive a hard copy of the book Literacy Foundations for English Learners by Dr. Elsa Cárdenas-Hagan.

Note: This event is geared toward Tk-3rd grade educators; however, the concepts could be valuable to intermediate teachers and coaches seeking a deeper understanding of ELD foundational literacy instruction. A light breakfast and lunch will be offered.
