*T3 Literacy Series with Valentina Gonzalez - Reading and Writing for ELs

Drawing from Valentina Gonzalez and Melinda Miller’s book, Reading & Writing with English Learners, this session is designed to offer educators user-friendly strategies for supporting English learners in literacy classrooms and aims to support teachers to work more effectively with ELs in reading and writing classrooms. We explore high-yield teaching methods that support and scaffold reading and writing with English learners. Participants will also observe and participate in sample activities that leverage assets that ELs bring into classrooms.


Session Objectives:

  • Learn instructional techniques that support English Learners
  • Explore strategies that promote academic language for all students
  • Incorporate listening, speaking, reading, and writing into all content areas
  • Learn practical ways to integrate language and content literacy 


This registration is for day 1 of the T3 Literacy Series on June 23!  If you are interested in registering for day 2 of the series that will be held in-person on September 14th, click here.
