This session grappled with how content standards help us to teach the vital speaking and listening skills our learners need; identified ways in which the CCRS Speaking and Listening standards and the TIF Effective Communication skills are already being addressed in ESL classrooms; and identified the ways we can use content standards to boost rigor in our classes and improve the oral language demanded of our learners in today’s world.
This session demonstrated that academic language is used not only in school, but at work and in our communities. It is language that gives all learners access to opportunities.
