Description

This Web seminar is part of a series focused on skills and teaching practices that are essential to successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards. School leaders, coaches, and teachers will learn strategies for gearing up for the demands of the CCSS.  

Join Mary Cappellini for an informative look at how elementary teachers can help ELLs improve reading comprehension through the use of informational texts.  The Common Core Standards clearly articulate a need for students to be proficient in reading complex informational text independently in a variety of content areas.  During this one-hour session, participants will learn how to: 

  • help ELLs use Key Ideas and Details from text to gain meaning
  • help ELLS use the Text Features, both the illustrations and text details, to gain meaning
  • match appropriate Informational texts with the language and reading levels of ELLs.
