ELLs in the Classroom: Best Practices for Teaching and Learning
From Alanna Carter
MacPherson Institute and MELD/MODEL have partnered to offer a series of 3 workshops intended to increase understanding of who English language learners (ELLs) are on campus, ensure educators are meeting the learning needs of ELLs, and assist educators in designing assessments for student success.
In the second workshop, ‘ELLs in the Classroom: Best Practices for Teaching and Learning,’ we examine teaching and learning strategies to support ELLs in face-to-face and online environments. This includes practices to effectively share content, classroom and material design, and teaching techniques. The potential of digital tools to support ELLs will also be explored. The voices and experiences of McMaster ELLs are represented in the workshop to ground ideas in real world experiences.
