Back to Educating English Language Learners: Connecting Language, Literacy, and Culture Three Disc DVD Set
When your school decides to turn around the underachievement and high drop out rates of English language learners, here’s a new DVD series that introduces you to a proven approach. Join renowned expert Virginia Rojas as she visits schools and classrooms across the United States where the vision of educating English language learners is changing to meet the needs of all students. Find out how schools team-up ESL and mainstream teachers as coteachers, integrate English language learners into classrooms with their English-proficient peers, and teach English language acquisition and academic content simultaneously. Scenes from elementary, middle, and high classrooms show how schools make this model work by connecting language, literacy, and culture to required curriculum content. To make it easy for you to create a complete workshop, resources, such as handouts and a PowerPoint presentation, are embedded in each of the DVDs.
