EL Classrooms in Practice: Middle School
EL Network School Institute
- City Milwaukee, WI
Public, EL Education Network
Five-day institutes are designed to be a powerful introduction to EL practices. In this institute, participants engage as “students” in a slice of a content- and literacy-rich learning expedition in order to experience the practices that characterize high-achieving, engaging classrooms throughout our network. The practices focus on developing a strong classroom culture, engaging students in daily assessment, and using effective instructional practices (e.g. building background knowledge, strategies for helping students read closely, vocabulary work, numeracy, fieldwork, using experts, and scaffolding to create high-quality work). This institute will also include a Crew/Advisory component focused on building community and character.
