Oral interactions promote the development of conceptual understandings and language proficiency. Ensuring English Learners have multiple opportunities to practice language and discuss grade-level content is essential. In this archived webinar, upper elementary teachers will learn how to support 3rd-5th grade students’ oral language development by asking questions that promote student analysis of a text’s key themes in distance learning environments.
The following topics are addressed in this session:
- Introduction to oral language development and its importance for English Learners
- Strategically designing questions to support text analysis and language development using grade-level texts
- Increasing opportunities for student talk in distance learning environments
This is the ninth of a 13-part webinar series designed to support English Learners in distance learning settings.
