Leading the Way for Implementation of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Learners and Students with Special Learning Needs

This highly practical one-day workshop (divided into two sessions) helps administrators, curriculum directors, coaches, and other instructional leaders explore the implications that the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) and Math have on English language learners (ELLs) and students with special learning needs. The workshop includes a morning session focused on ELL and an afternoon session focused on students with special learning needs.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS:

In the morning session, participants examine what the CCSS mean for ELLs as mainstream classroom teachers implement the CCSS for ELA and Math in their classrooms. Participants also explore how to accommodate instruction for such students.

OUTCOMES:

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

• Identify ways to differentiate instruction for ELLs as part of their CCSS implementation.

• Navigate the organizational structure of the CCSS and how they apply to ELLs.

• Explain the key strategies that work best with ELLs in the content areas.

• Identify practical strategies to use with ELLs with a database of activities correlated to CCSS.

STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL LEARNING NEEDS

In the afternoon session, participants examine what the CCSS mean for students with special learning needs. They also consider frameworks for implementing the CCSS for ELA and Math and explore how to accommodate instructional needs.

 OUTCOMES:

 By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

• Navigate the organizational structure and language of the CCSS, and understand how they apply to students with special learning needs.

• Identify appropriate accommodations to ensure maximum participation of students with special learning needs as part of the CCSS implementation.

• Practice unpacking a few standards as examples of how to differentiate instruction for special populations.

• Determine key strategies to adapt instruction in the content areas for students with special learning needs.
