Are your English learners getting enough academic language instruction? Join us for a free webinar with associate professor Dr. Sylvia Linan-Thompson. She’ll examine the effect of explicit literacy instruction on students’ transition from Spanish to English instruction, and the implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI) with English learners.

Academic language is essential for academic success, yet many English learners are not exposed to this level of language. In this presentation, Dr. Linan-Thompson will focus on the use of academic discussions based on rich text to support English learners in developing academic language and conceptual knowledge. The research base for practices will be provided as well as language and literacy practices that can be implemented across content areas. Register today.

Date: Tuesday, May 1, 2012

Time: 2:00-3:00 p.m. MST

Presenter: Dr. Sylvia Linan-Thompson, associate professor, University of Texas, Austin
