Workshop #4
Academic Language – The Bridge across the Common Core! What is it?  How to teach it!

ELD and classroom teachers love this workshop as they learn strategies to co-teach academic language and grammar across the curriculum.  This workshop is of particular value to those participating as a cohort or a grade level team.  We explore strategies and activities to build academic language in Intermediate and Early Advanced English language learners, as well as native English speakers.  These strategies are ideal for both push in or pull out programs.

The following areas will be presented and explored:

Phonological Features

Vocabulary and Word Formation




There is time allotted to create multiple Make and Take projects relating to each category.
