We Are All Language Teachers: Supporting English Learners Across the Content Areas

In this professional learning session, K-12 educators will deepen their understandings of the context for why cross-disciplinary support for English Learners (ELs) is needed; be introduced to the theory informing Quality Teaching for English Learners (QTEL); and will engage in and share research-based instructional practices that support ELs’ literacy and language growth.



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. What does Quality (remote) Teaching for English Learners look like across the content areas?
  2. How does the Lesson in 3 Moments Framework support the development of English Learners’ language, conceptual, and analytical practices?
  3. How can educators connect with EL students, parents, and families during remote learning?
