The Challenges of Learning English as a Second Language

With the increasing number of English language learners (ELLs) in K-12 schools, today's teachers have a new responsibility - serving as models of English for ELLs. Most teachers, however, are unfamiliar with aspects of English that are most challenging to ELLs. In this course, Dr. Keith Folse, Associate Professor of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at the University of Central Florida, identifies these challenges using examples of common questions and mistakes made by ELLs. He provides explanations and effective options for answering difficult questions.

This presentation was recorded during the SETESOL conference in Rogers, Arkansas on October 8-11, 2014.

Close Reading of Complex Texts

The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts requires students "to read increasingly complex texts with growing independence." When teachers understand what makes a text complex, they can better support their students in reading them. In this course, Dr. Doug Fisher examines the quantitative and qualitative factors of text complexity, as well as the ways in which readers can be matched with texts and tasks. He also examines how close reading of complex texts scaffolds students' understanding.
