Preparing Early for the 6th Grade STAAR
Backmapping to ELL Success in Grade 6: What’s your K-5 plan?
How do you support ELLs throughout your elementary literacy programs to make sure your 6th graders are prepared for the Grade 6 English Reading STAAR?
In the session, principals will learn 4 practices that can be built throughout elementary school to:
- Support teachers in developing students’ foundational skills in the early elementary grades
- Help teachers build on the foundational skills as students transition from learning to read to reading to learn
- Equip teachers with the confidence and support to apply best practices throughout English literacy instruction
For Secondary Teachers
“Help! My students can’t understand the textbook!”
3 Teaching Tips for Getting Down the Field
If you’re a secondary teacher with students who struggle to access grade-level reading content in social studies, science, mathematics, or English language arts, join Lexia for an interactive workshop on 3 practical ways to help your students better understand texts in your content area.
Participants are asked to bring a classroom text that their students struggle to understand. We’ll examine three profiles of non-proficient secondary readers, so secondary teachers understand the underlying weakness of older non-proficient readers and how best to target instruction for each non-proficient reading profile.
Participants will then learn three critical--and easy-to-teach--aspects of academic language that can make an immediate impact in supporting their non-proficient secondary readers in accessing grade-level content area reading materials, and will leverage three easy-to-implement strategies to help build the academic language skills of non-proficient secondary readers while simultaneously teaching grade-level social studies, science, math, and English language arts content.
The workshop will provide the chance to create a modified lesson plan with fellow content area teachers that helps students to access the academic language found in their textbooks, and as a bonus, we’ll also discuss strategies for department chairs to build departmental capacity for incorporating these easy-to-use strategies into their classes.
