This mini-workshop will introduce a new assets-based instructional framework for supporting elementary-aged multilingual learners.

These practical strategies will be presented within the stages of the instructional framework:

  1. Assessing and Planning
  2. Demonstration
  3. Shared Practice
  4. Independent Interactive Practice
  5. Independent Practice
  6. Collaborative Reinforcement and Feedback

Practical instructional strategies for scaffolding reading, writing, speaking, and listening will be introduced with classroom examples.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will learn about assets-based approaches to literacy instruction for multilingual learners.
  • Participants will learn strategies and techniques for language-oriented planning, instruction, and assessment.
  • Participants will gain an understanding of the assets-based instructional framework with classroom examples.
  • Participants will have practical steps for implementing the assets-based instructional framework to support their multilingual learners.
