This webinar will build from the webinar, How to Prepare Dual Language Elementary Students to Engage in Conversations Around Central Ideas with High-Quality Texts, and introduce dual language educators to teaching and learning approaches and processes that support elementary students’ abilities to access and engage in disciplinary literacy practices with high quality, complex texts. Instruction designed to ensure high quality interactions with texts allow students to develop metacognitive and metalinguistic practices while building and practicing their understanding of language.
The following topics will be addressed in this session:
• The critical thinking and literacy practices needed to succeed in the 21st century
• A research-based approach to meaningfully engaging elementary dual language students with high quality texts that lead to:
o the development of metacognitive and metalinguistic practices;
o deepened understandings of key concepts and themes within and across texts; and
o support rich understandings of language
