Approaches to Instruction for English Learners

Approaches to Instruction for English Learners


This self-paced online course provides an overview of effective approaches to instruction that support English learners (ELs) in K-12 settings, with a focus on secondary grades.


In this course, participants will increase their understanding of sheltered instruction practices as they work to effectively integrate language and content instruction for EL students.  The three modules listed before focus on learning about effective approaches and how to apply these instructional techniques in their classrooms, sharing evidence and providing ample opportunities for reflecting on learning throughout the course.  The content and framework for this online course is based on decades of research by the Center for Applied Linguistics and extensive experience working with educators


Each module begins with a warm-up activity and includes a narrated PowerPoint presentation and readings. Throughout the course, participants have opportunities to reflect upon and practice new learning, self-assess through quizzes; view real-world examples through video demonstration; and apply lessons learned through applicable wrap-up activities.
