How the ELL Brain Learns

Presenter: David A. Sousa, Ed.D.

What does the latest research reveal about the ELL brain? In this session, Dr. Sousa will provide an overview of how the young brain acquires the first language, and then look at how trying to learn a second language affects brain development. We will discuss the challenges that ELL students face when learning both conversational and academic language simultaneously and explore ways to help them. Finally, we will debunk some misconceptions about ELLs and English language acquisition. There will be some surprises!

Building Rich Vocabularies

Presenter: Timothy Rasinski, Ph.D.

For students to understand what they are reading, they need to read fluently and understand the meaning of the words they encounter in their reading. Research has demonstrated that vocabulary, along with fluency, are major factors in students' reading development and that many students have not achieved sufficient mastery in these areas. In this webinar Dr. Timothy Rasinski will share his thoughts and practical ideas for making vocabulary instruction engaging and effective.
