Purposeful Lesson Planning for Language Learners     

Target Audience:
This workshop is designed for general classroom teachers and English language specialists who share instructional responsibility for language learners.


This two day learning opportunity will enhance participants' lesson planning processes. Specifically, participants will focus on creating contexts for meaningful language use within settings that integrate content and academic language learning. Throughout this process, participants will explore elements of the WIDA Standards Framework in depth as they design instruction that promotes students' content learning and language development

Participants will be able to:

  • Explore and connect lesson planning considerations for ELs to your instructional context/materials and discuss ways to implement in your context
  • Discuss ways to create meaningful contexts for language use connected to content concepts and skills.
  • Describe how the components of the WIDA Framework for Language Development Standards can support your lesson planning process.
  • Discuss the influence of sociocultural context and identity on student language learning.
  • Identify the strengths as well as language development and learning needs for groups of students.
  • Identify the academic language demands of teaching and learning in the content areas while considering student needs.
  • Develop language objectives connected to content learning. 
  • Watch a preparation webinar in advance 
  • Please bring a lesson that you will be working on in the near future and any supporting materials you may
