In this interactive workshop, New York State TESOL “Outstanding Teacher Award” 2015 recipient Scott Freiberger will support all teachers and administrators in improving instruction. Participants will gain an understanding of Academic Language (AL) and its features, develop an awareness of the importance of teaching AL, and learn “hands-on” strategies for choosing academic words and enlightening classroom conversations. The role of vocabulary knowledge in our students’ school success will be discussed, and helpful handouts will be distributed. Develop an awareness of Academic Language (AL) and learn “hands-on” strategies for enlightening classroom conversations!
