How can elementary teachers leverage academic texts to deepen

their English Learners language proficiency? This two-hour webinar,

with embedded pre-session work and follow-up application, will

equip teachers to select high quality mentor texts in order to build

students’ ability to effectively express themselves in written and oral

formats. Teachers will learn how to guide their students to effectively

make meaning by analyzing texts and text excerpts for critical text

features. Then, through whole group integrated ELD and small

group designated ELD, students practice and incorporate these

sophisticated language structures into their repertoire, thereby

increasing proficiency in English. Through the process, English

learners develop critical skills to engage with and produce academic

language and texts, to both leverage linguistic strengths and

address needs.
