Understand the Critical Role of Oral Language in Reading for Your Title I and ELL Students
This event takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, 3 to 4 p.m. ET.
Research has shown that oral language has a profound impact on children's preparedness for kindergarten and on their success throughout their academic career. Children typically enter school with a wide range of background knowledge and oral-language ability, attributable in part to factors such as children’s experiences in the home and their socioeconomic status. As a result, Title I and English-language-learner subgroups typically face a gap in academic ability that tends to persist or grow throughout their school experience.
Learn from two administrators—Pam Howard and Shawn Parkhurst—about their strategies for oral language development, which include a focus on foundational comprehension and vocabulary to address students who lack exposure to English language and have limited background experiences.
