This Education Connections webinar will be held from 7:00 - 8:00 pm ET.
About the Webinar
In this interactive session, Center for Applied Linguistics staff will lead participants in considering ways to more effectively implement content and language objectives in their classrooms as a means to effectively create opportunities for all students. Content and language objectives are an important part of sheltered instruction, in which teachers bring content and language instruction together to better support all students, and especially English learner students. Whether you already implement content and language objectives or would like to consider how you could do so in your classroom, this session will equip you with approaches to supporting your students’ language and content learning. ¡Juntos Podemos!
