Cebu International School EARCOS Weekend Workshop

Content & Language Integrated Learning: EAL & Classroom Teachers Collaborating for English Learners

with Dr. Virginia P. Rojas, Language Education Specialist / ASCD Faculty

Introduction

In this two-day institute, participants will:

▪ distinguish former ‘deficit-based’ EAL paradigms, programs, and practices from current ‘strengths-based' models;

▪ practice using the ‘content-and-language-integrated learning’ (CLIL) model to explore how content and EAL teachers can seamlessly work together to enhance English learners’ classroom achievement and academic language development;

▪ build a ‘translanguaging’ instructional repertoire for leveraging English learners' primary languages, cultural assets, and prior knowledge;

▪ cultivate a ’differentiation/ personalization mindset' not as events but as a way of daily classroom life;

▪ cultivate a 'progressive scaffolding up mindset' not as events but as a way of daily classroom life; and

▪ learn how to build an evidence-based portfolio system of content and language assessments to provide evidence of English learners' achievements.
