A new model for elementary school programs and instruction developed for the Sobrato Early Academic Language Program that optimizes language, academic and cognitive development for English learners will be presented. The approach to intensive language instruction, thematic curriculum planning and systematic articulation/alignment across grade levels will be shared. Teacher developed tools for instruction and evaluation and lessons learned will be part of this important workshop.
Through varied participatory structures and classroom videos, participants will be introduced to a framework and model that optimizes academic content language for English learners within the 5E science inquiry process. Effective practices that promote talk, thought and interaction for language instruction will be presented with applicability to other content areas.
