What it is:

Newcomer ELLs face a complex and daunting set of challenges. How can educators appropriately provide support to this population? Based on research of the social, emotional, and academic needs of secondary immigrant students, this session will offer useful strategies and techniques for content-area teachers of newcomer ELLs. Additionally, campus and district leaders will gain practical advice about a systemic approach to meeting the needs of this ever- increasing population.

This comprehensive training will highlight several components relevant to newcomer instruction including: cultural pro ciency, second language acquisition strategies, scheduling/credits, and effective content-area instruction. Participants will receive a copy of Dr. Yzquierdo’s new book, Pathways to Greatness for ELL Newcomers: A Comprehensive Guide for Schools and Teachers, which includes over 30 activities for content-area and ESL teachers of newcomers.
