The webinar provides knowledge about aligning the Common Core State Standards with a reading/writing workshop instructional model in elementary settings. This base of knowledge is used to better understand how to meet the academic and linguistic needs of English language learners within the reading/writing workshop model. In order to best support the needs of diverse classrooms, the presentation of engaging activities and children's literature examples focuses on comprehension and meaning making through the use of integrated reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing and visually representing. The workshop provides strategies to address the needs of students of poverty and English language learners in diverse classrooms using balanced literacy within the workshop model.
The webinar begins by addressing ways to use data to drive and differentiate instruction according to students' linguistic needs within the workshop model. Next, the presenter shares instructional strategies and differentiation techniques that align with and support the Common Core State Standards. Suggested fiction and nonfiction children's literature will be presented during the strategies discussion. Classroom examples and student work are shared to provide a deeper understanding of how the aligned instructional strategies assist in the language and literacy development of elementary English language learners with a wide range of language proficiency levels.
