Supporting language learning across the grades: Practical connections to literacy and academic learning
Presenter: Geraldine P. Wallach, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
This presentation will outline key concepts and recent research that relate to literacy-based language intervention approaches with a focus on the integration of spoken and written language. The continuum from foundation literacy, through content-based literacy, to disciplinary literacy will be highlighted. The workshop will provide a conceptual framework that underpins the writing of meaningful goals and objectives for children and pre-adolescents that address language, literacy and academic connections. Relevant and less relevant goals will be evaluated. The themes addressed will include the reality that language includes and encompasses literacy and literacy includes and encompasses language. Highlighting the continuum from early elementary school to middle and high school levels, we will ask: What should language-literacy based intervention “look like” at each level? And what is/are the roles of collaborative team members within a shared literacy environment. Will these ideas work across diverse populations we serve in schools?
CEUs will only be awarded to those who stay for the entire workshop. SCCSHA cannot provide partial credit.
Please Note: Workshop will begin at 8:30am sharp. Please log in 15 minutes prior to ensure Workshop begins at scheduled time.
