Structured Literacy for English Learners: What Every Educator Should Know

Structured literacy is a term that describes a comprehensive and evidence-based approach for literacy instruction that is based upon language skills. It includes foundational skills of reading and writing in addition to the development of oral language and comprehension in an explicit and systematic manner. Evidence-based practices that are necessary for the successful development of literacy among English learners will be described. A demonstration of effective literacy knowledge for the development of second language literacy will be modeled and practiced. Participants will learn how to address cross-linguistic features into every lesson and thus implement an asset-based approach to instruction.
