We are happy to share this offering will be happening again later in February, 2023. Register for this offering here.
This 3-day workshop has been designed to provide art educators with research-proven practices and tools for working with English language learners. During the workshop effective research-based strategies and practices for working with ELs as they pertain to art instruction will be modeled. Participants will have opportunities to practice the modeled strategies, to analyze their practice, to provide and receive feedback, and to reflect on their experiences. Through this cycle of reflective practice, participants will strengthen their skills and knowledge as well as gain confidence and familiarity with research-proven practices for working with ELs.
Activities and tasks are designed to reinforce key concepts and practices, which utilize tools presented for the purpose of developing a body of sheltered English lessons to be shared among participants. Participants will work collaboratively in grade-level groups/ clusters on these.
February 18 9:00 am – 4:00 pm & February 19 9:00 am – 12:00 pm: Begin the day with the whole group, with time for collaborative task work in zoom breakout rooms, reconvening for debriefing and closing daily.
February 20 9:00 am – 4:00 pm: Begin the day with final strategies presentation, participants will work in breakout rooms to finalize their culminating lesson plan and then reconvene in the whole group for the final group presentations.
Class participation and your interaction is an integral part of the course format. Additionally, you will want to come to class prepared with the items that you are requested to bring and be prepared to discuss the assigned reading; most of the work has been designed to do during class.
Reflections: At the conclusion of each class you will be asked to write a reflection in Google Classroom on an aspect of what was learned that day. Additionally, on the final day you will be requested to fill out a class evaluation.
*Note: A more detailed daily schedule will be provided to registered participants before the first day.
