Acceleration and not Remediation: Literacy and Language Acquisition Strategies for ELL/MLS

Lucia Buttaro (Chair, TESOL/ Bilingual Advanced Certificate Programs, Graduate School of Education, Touro College)

Learning another language is and should be seen as an adventure for all, and not remediation for one group. Language is an integral part of culture and students learn best when their culture as well as their language is respected, affirmed, and used in instruction when they are learning a second language. Development and learning are enhanced when they occur in contexts that are socioculturally, linguistically and cognitively meaningful for the learner. In this workshop, teachers will walk away with strategies and techniques (such as “TRP” –total physical response and “LEA” Language Experience Approach) that they can use in their own classrooms to enhance and develop mastery for English language learners.
