About the course
Train-the-Trainer; Participant-Only; Virtual-Synchronous
This course focuses on literacy training for educators providing individualized instruction to English language learners who need additional literacy supports. The focus is on reading comprehension and oral language development to help ELLs participate on equal terms in the classroom as they confront the dual challenge of mastering grade-level content while continuing to learn English. ELITE (Expanding Literacy Instruction by Tutoring ELLs) is based on the highly effective literacy intervention research by Diane August and reported by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute for Educational Sciences and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
