Elementary teachers working with diverse populations often ask, "How can I support the needs of my English learners and proficient English speakers at the same time? What can I do to make sure they are getting rigorous content that is developmentally and linguistically appropriate?" Lindsey Moses has spent her educational career experiencing, studying, and researching these very questions. Based on classroom experience and research, she uses photographs, student work, and classroom videos to make the practical implementation of supporting English learners accessible.

In this one-day workshop, Lindsey shares effective ways to modify your routines to meet the needs of every student in your classroom, including planning and implementing units of study that are supportive of English learners; providing guided learning experiences for English learners during independent work time; supporting language and literacy development with needs-based, small-group instruction; and creating learning opportunities for English learners to engage in meaningful experiences with both literature and informational text.

Lindsey's instructional ideas, lesson examples, children's literature suggestions, and differentiation strategies give you all the tools you need to implement a reading workshop that is as effective for your English learners as it is for your English speakers. The day will include practical, easy-to-implement instructional ideas that can be used in a variety of classroom settings for new and veteran teachers.
