    Language and Concept Development

    This online eWorkshop will focus on addressing the following essential question: How can I provide multilingual learners the greatest opportunities to acquire both the knowledge and the language needed to be successful in my classroom? Participants will explore six online units of content, post reflections and lesson ideas regarding the content, and reply to each other’s posts.
    This eWorkshop is a requirement for teachers in the 2021-2023 CU Denver CLD Master’s Cohort, but open to all teachers.  This course fulfills 15 hours towards the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse, CLD, teacher relicensure requirements for the Colorado Department of Education, AND IS NOW part of the SVVSD pathway for the district CLD certificate. Contact Oakley Schilling for more information.

    eWorkshop Guiding Questions:
    ? Unit 1: How do I distinguish the key concepts of instruction from the language used to        communicate about them?
    ? Unit 2: How do I identify and make understandable the essential concepts of the curriculum?
    ? Unit 3: How can I uncover the language demands of my instruction?
    ? Unit 4: How can I support students in taking on the language demands of content instruction?
    ? Unit 5: How can teachers engage families in order to help students (and themselves) access and deepen what students know about the topics of instruction?
    ? Unit 6: Answer the Essential Question

    eWorkshops are inquiry oriented, multimedia, hybrid courses that are comprised of six units. Each unit is organized around an essential question and a guiding question and follows the same three-part learning cycle:
    ? Explore: participants spend 45 minutes exploring new ideas, content, concepts or perspectives.
    ? Make-It-Work: participants select one of a minimum of two designed and completely supported options of how to make the new learning from Explore work in an actual classroom context. Participants spend approximately 45 minutes selecting and preparing to implement the option of their choice.
    ? Share: participants share their learning either in an online space (a threaded discussion) or in a Face-to-Face session. Share usually takes 30-45 minutes of a participant’s time.

    Each unit takes approximately two hours.

    Target Audience

    Licensed teachers and administrators.

    No out-of-district participants.
