Brief Program Description

This session will model a strategy that utilizes colorful pictures, small group discussions, decision-making and self-correction to build core academic vocabulary. It is student-centered, interactive and fun. Students observe pictures, discuss connections, make decisions based on prior knowledge/ peer feedback and self-correct if needed. Teachers provide gestures and expanded information as students turn and re-teach new connections to their partners. This right-brained approach is student-centered, interactive and supports Ells and beginning readers. Watch brains light up with positive energy as students think, connect, act and celebrate learning a new language!
