Scaffolding Instruction with English Learners

In this professional learning session, K-12 educators will analyze dynamic and situated instructional supports that develop English Learners’, and all students’, ability to engage with and make meaning of disciplinary concepts through interactive language practices.



We invite educators to continue to learn and grow with these resources. Discover and collect new ideas and examples relevant to you after viewing the session video and related resources. Take notes and reflect while you view so you can customize the techniques for your own remote learning and classroom needs and adapt the strategies for your students. Let these guiding questions support your reflective practice after viewing the session and/or reviewing of session materials:

  1. How can building English Learners’ language, conceptual, and analytical practices be supported remotely?
  2. How can remote instruction be scaffolded for ELs so that learning takes place in the ‘apprenticeship’ zone?
  3. What could the six types of scaffolding look like in your remote classroom?
