Strengthening the Fabric of Instruction: Interweaving Content and Language

WIDA’s four Big Ideas in the 2020 ELD Standards Framework underlie curriculum, instruction, and assessment for multilingual learners. In this session, we focus on the integration of content and language within a functional approach to language development. Beginning with an authentic classroom scenario, we explore tasks and texts across content areas. Working in small groups, participants identify content and language demands and explore ways to scaffold learning by leveraging multilingual learners’ linguistic and cultural assets while accessing multimodalities. With opportunities for dialog and reflection, participants then debrief their experience using a standards-based checklist to support teaching and learning.
