Making WIDA Meaningful-Meeting ELL Student Needs

How am I supposed to teach students who don’t speak English? And how do I communicate with their parents? I know about differentiation but how do I differentiate for different language levels? What do these WiDA levels even mean? If you have English language learners (ELLs) in your class, these are probably questions you’ve asked yourself. And as the state with the 2nd fastest ELL population, there are a lot of teachers that have the same questions you have. Join us for this interactive session as we seek to answer these questions and address the following:

•Introduction to WiDA resources and tools

•Second language acquisition and its impact on content learning for younger learners

•Strategies for differentiating content, instruction, student products, and assessment for ELLs
