Word Study with Emergent Bilinguals with Lori Helman

October 16, 2018 01:00 PM MST - October 16, 2018 02:00 PM MST

Many students speak one language at home and learn a new one at school, either as they participate in dual immersion programs or receive English learner support. These students are becoming bilingual and word study instruction can build on their capabilities in two languages. This session guides educators to tailor word study for students learning in a new language through techniques such as  making connections across languages, identifying cross-linguistic challenges, and supporting students to use all of their linguistic resources.
