Powerful Learning Experiences for Secondary English Learners


Session Dates

Tuesday November 16, 2021 8:30 AM - 11:45 AM - Webinar

Powerful learning experiences for English Learners offer high challenge with high support and require quality peer interactions and a focus on language. When designing learning experiences, we often focus on the what: the content to be explored. When working with English Learners, the how is particularly important as students develop conceptual, analytic and disciplinary language practices in tandem. Designing instruction that has a focus on language is fundamental to the success of English Learners. This session will address how to design instruction that advances understandings and disciplinary language practices for English Learners.


Participants will:

  • Explain principles of quality practice with English Learners
  • Describe how to design learning experiences that challenge and support all students by structuring peer interactions and focusing on language.
