The differentiating instruction workshops answer the question: “How do I plan instruction for the varying ELP levels in my classroom?” These full day workshops provide a framework for planning, delivering, and evaluating classroom instruction based on students’ diverse ELP levels. They offer a way to differentiate instruction to ensure all students receive appropriate support, regardless of their English proficiency. At the end of the Differentiating Instruction workshops, participants will:
- Become familiar with research on differentiated instruction and academic English language
- Integrate differentiated instruction and academic English language into classroom instruction and assessment.
- Define academic English language, distinguish academic content, and use tools and strategies to teach English learners at different proficiency levels.
