If you have students who are English Learners, sign up to attend this session by one of the greats from the fields of bilingual education, speech pathology, and literacy. Structured Literacy is a term that describes a comprehensive and evidence-based approach for literacy instruction.  It includes foundational skills of reading and writing in addition to the development of oral language and comprehension in an explicit and systematic manner. English learners have been included in large-scale research studies which will be described in this session.  Additionally, evidence-based practices will be modeled. Participants will also learn how to design lessons which include cross-linguistic features and thus implement an asset-based approach to literacy instruction among English learners. This webinar is appropriate for both general education and special education professionals working with students of all ages.
