Language Development for English Language Learners. Facilitator's Guide
Rivera, Mabel O.; Moughamian, Ani; Francis, David J.
Center on Instruction
This Facilitator's Guide has been prepared for presenters of the "Language Development for English Language Learners" professional development module. It accompanies the 67-slide PowerPoint presentation with speaker's notes and contains materials to help prepare for a professional development session, including activity instructions, handouts, agendas, references, and templates for contacting participants. Intended for audiences of state and district leaders, the "Language Development for English Language Learners" professional development module provides background knowledge on language development, language assessment of English Language Learners, academic language instruction, and vocabulary in grades K through 12. It is expected that technical assistance providers or states will use the module to train department of education and school district personnel involved in professional development for principals, coaches, and teachers of English Language Learners. Through this professional development, it is hoped that: Participants will: collaborate in activities that clarify the meanings of key questions and terms about language development for ELLs; and apply the content as they plan to deliver instruction to ELLs. Facilitators will learn about additional resources to adapt, modify, enrich, and further explain content to meet participants' needs. A glossary and templates are included.
