Speaking and Listening are essential for the development of language and academic content! Throughout this session, you will learn quick, easy ways to let students talk more. You will learn how to scaffold conversation opportunities so that all learners participate, how to include oral language practice during the lessons you already use, and how to provide visual tools in the classroom that encourage higher-level talking. We will also experience how to use Literature to amp up oral language, while also meeting Illinois ELA standards! You will also participate in a language experience approach activity and brainstorm/research some language experiences that you can add into your social studies and science units! You will also learn pre-writing oral language activities! You have time to let kids talk because they will be meeting all the other standards at the same time, including Illinois Learning Standards and WIDA Language Development Standards. Please bring a read-aloud that you like to use in class so that you can develop an oral language lesson to use with that text.
