Developing, Scaffolding, and Assessing Language and Literacy in the Portuguese Immersion Classroom

Price: $15.00

Transforming textbook content into meaningful, motivating, multisensory learning experiences can be a real challenge!  It can be even harder to integrate language, content, and culture in ways that develop literacy skills!  This workshop is designed to help K-12 Portuguese immersion teachers learn to:

 

  1. Embed culturally authentic texts and interactive reading strategies into lessons
  2. Engage learners with academic content using stories, simulations, and STEM activities
  3. Examine how scaffolding strategies and formative assessment techniques can improve learners’ performance
