Event description:

Virtual Teacher Strand

Constructing Meaning provides teachers with the process and tools for weaving explicit language instruction into content area teaching. Lesson planning is driven by the content and academic language demands of discipline-specific learning. Based on backward design and a gradual release of responsibility model, the Constructing Meaning process prompts teachers to:

  • understand the role language plays in content learning
  • decide what language knowledge students need to access content and express understanding
  • provide appropriate, explicit oral and written language instruction and practice

We will have live virtual sessions each day from 9 to 11:30am as well as 2:30 to 3:15pm. You will have tasks in the early afternoon including readings, lesson planning, and videos. We will discuss those tasks when we meet at the end of the day.
