English Language Learners in the Classroom (5 Hours)

English Language Learners in the Classroom (5 Hours)

Facilitate optimal learning in the classroom by helping English Language Learners feel validated. This online PD course includes a range of strategies and activities that lead to interactions which benefit the four language skill areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

The Sheltered Instruction (SI) model is presented along with ways to apply this model when teaching English Language Learners. The importance of working collaboratively and ensuring the involvement of parents to enhance learning is emphasized with corresponding strategies. Through a range of research-based findings, teachers are equipped to engage students in “higher order thinking skills” and design a sufficiently challenging curriculum.

Online self-study PD courses help teachers complete continuing education requirements.

  • This was an interesting topic and will benefit teachers of both native speakers and ELL students. So many teaching practices discussed in this class are applicable to enhancing learning for all students (as was mentioned in the course, "good teaching practice"). Thanks.

  • I had a question regarding completion of course and the inability to print off the certificate. The tech got back to me within hours, was able to answer my questions, and did a couple beneficial rearranging of courses. As it turned out, I hadn't completed the course so I was able to complete it and go on to the next course. I don't know what I would have done with out PLB. I am thankful!!!
