2017 SUMMER INSTITUTE:
Teaching English Language Learners in the K-12 Mainstream
LLED 478A 96A
All courses are subject to minimum enrolment. We advise that participants do not finalize any travel arrangements until notified that this course is confirmed.
This five-day intensive summer institute explores the guiding principles and effective practices for teaching English Language Learners (TELL) in mainstream K-12 classrooms, in the context of BC’s new, redesigned curriculum. As significant immigration increases from all over the world, the institute affords an opportunity for educators to discover how English Language Learners (ELLs) can develop the language of school and what teaching approaches work best in helping them achieve academic success in the 21st century.
In a changing world, with changing literacies, the institute aims to provide educators with a firm understanding about and expertise in integrating language and content in various ways, such as integrated or thematic units or inquiry or project-based learning approaches; and utilizing the multilingual, multimodal (speech, writing, image, dramatic performance, music and so on), and multicultural ways of meaning-making that learners bring to the classroom.
Practical, concrete instructional strategies, including technology integration, for mainstream elementary and secondary classroom teachers are presented.
Margaret Early is an Associate Professor in the Department of Language and Literacy at UBC. Her collaborative research focuses on innovate pedagogies for teaching English Language Learners in mainstream classrooms. She is the author (with Jim Cummins) of Big Ideas for Expanding Minds: Teaching English Language Learners across the Curriculum (Rubicon/Pearson, 2015).
