ELLs: Thinking Skills and CCSS, Focus on the Six Shifts

Publisher: National Professional Resources Inc./Dude Publishing

ISBN: 1935609858

Category: Education

Page: 6

View: 5395

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) require students to engage higher level thinking skills and language use to activate their understanding of content/text. They are designed to be academically rigorous for all students, and are especially so for students who are English language learners (ELL). In ELLs: Thinking Skills and CCSS, Dr. Estee Lopez provides evidence-based instructional approaches as well as best practices for helping ELLs meet the CCSS for ELA. The six-page (tri-fold) guide is structured around the six shifts embodied in the CCSS for English Language Arts: 1. Increasing reading of informational text/balancing informational and literary texts 2. Knowledge in the disciplines 3. Staircase of complexity 4. Text-based answers 5. Writing from sources 6. Academic language The guide explains each shift, its implications for ELLs, and what is required of teachers. For each shift, the author lists best practices, examples of scaffolding for ELLs, and things that teachers and administrators must to do create conditions that ensure that ELLs succeed.

»Das meine ich nicht. Ich meine, ich will nicht bloß eine Affäre mit dir haben. Affären – Affären sind – ich weiß auch nicht –, wie wenn man sich eine Ferienwohnung in Marbella zur Teilnutzung kauft oder so.« Oliver und Stuart sind Freunde seit Schultagen. Als Stuart Gillian kennenlernt, die Frau, die er heiraten will, ist er überglücklich. Alles klingt nach Happy End. Doch auch Oliver ist in Gillian verliebt, das merkt er am Tag nach der Hochzeit. Und er lässt nicht locker, sondern hofft, die Frau seines besten Freundes für sich zu gewinnen.Julian Barnes hat einen Roman geschrieben, in dem die Protagonisten einzeln zu Wort kommen und allzu menschliche Abgründe auf höchst amüsante Weise deutlich werden.

The Bologna Reform has been implemented in a large part of the European Union and it is time to take a short pause to reflect over some of the lessons learned up to now. The aim of this book is to share experiences and reflections on English for Specific Purposes pedagogy in Western European higher education. Taking as a starting point the development of the EU policies during the past couple of decades and their national implementations, the chapters in this book provide various perspectives, both theoretical and practical, on the ways in which the reform has been implemented and its effects on the teaching of ESP. Experiences of developing programmes and courses incorporating Content and Language Integrated Learning and Autonomous and Lifelong Learning are described, as well as Problem-Based Learning and Process-Genre Pedagogies. The book also includes chapters on the crucial, but often neglected issue of teacher support in meeting the challenges of teaching content through the medium of English.
