TELIC: Teaching English Language Learners in Content Classes

Teaching Reading and Writing to English Language Learners (Literacy Development Training)

This sixteen-hour professional learning experience is designed to help teachers in upper elementary classrooms (grades 3-6) develop the skills and knowledge to promote reading, writing, and vocabulary development for English language learners in Sheltered English Immersion classrooms.

SIT has designed this training based on the findings of the National Literacy Panel and the National Staff Development Council Standards for Staff Development.

SIT uses an active and disciplined approach to training.  Organized around essential questions, this training draws upon teachers’ current practice in the classroom and engages them in experiences which model student learning. Through this approach, the SIT Literacy Development Training helps teachers to:

  1. recognize existing strategies they already use which promote reading, writing and vocabulary development for ELLs

  2. learn new strategies for developing reading, writing and vocabulary which they can incorporate into their teaching

    Training requirements:

    • A school-based or district-based cohort of maximum 30 teachers
    • Two days of face-to-face training, scheduled at least one week apart
    • An application assignment to be completed individually or in grade level teams, between Day 1 and Day 2

    PDPs:
    Depending on their district’s guidelines, participants who meet the training requirements may be awarded a certain number of PDPs by their school or district.

    Note: For Massachusetts teachers, this training fulfills the Category 4 requirement.
