Sample Lessons: Diverse Learners in Sheltered English Immersion Classrooms - Middle School is now available for the certified teachers audience on the LMS.

In addition to language acquisition itself, English Language Learners (ELLs) also face the daunting task of continuing to learn in the content areas while being provided instruction in a language that they have not fully acquired. Access the Core’s lead educational consultant, Dr. Anastasia Filipek, provides demonstration lessons featuring teaching strategies that help ELLs to thrive in the content areas. She models learning activities and direct instruction techniques that are accessible to students in sheltered ESL environments while also integrating support for language acquisition.

This course, which features footage from a real sixth grade science classroom, contains Dr. Filipek’s model lesson on the circulatory system. It was taped in Fayetteville Public Schools on November 10-12, 2014.
