In our first seminar session, I will try to give an overview of how to use language objectives in content-area instruction for Secondary students. The session will cover the following topics:
- What is academic language? Why is it a must in any content area?
- How can you explicitly teach the academic language that fits your content area?
- What are language objectives?
- How can we integrate language objectives in our content areas?
( We will work on this tool "Task analysis for production" provided by http://www.livebinders.com/ )
