May 15, 2019 3:30 – 5:00 pm Pacific This 90-minute webinar is designed to provide practical, evidence-based resources for teachers to promote language and literacy learning for young Dual Language Learners (DLLs)/English learners (ELs) in the early years of schooling.

The teaching and learning cycle (TLC) is a framework for scaffolding oral language development and emergent academic reading and writing by weaving together content, language, and literacy. This approach uses interactive reading, text-based discussions, and language awareness building to engage all students, including DLLs/ELs, and is intended to provide equitable opportunities to learn and thrive.

Using the TLC, presenters will discuss how to provide abundant opportunities for children to think, talk, and write to develop content knowledge. Participants will:

Learn about the TLC framework and consider its uses for promoting language and literacy development;

Hear about examples of interactive reading and text-based discussions aligned with the TLC framework; and

Discuss how the TLC framework is a shift from traditional approaches to teaching DLLs/ELs.
