The Structured Sheltered Lesson in Secondary Social Studies (SU1634555)

Secondary social studies teachers will leave this training with the ability to begin the school year with a solid understanding of how to structure a lesson for ELLs by meaningfully incorporating the ELPS and anchors of support (e.g., sentence stems, visuals, anchor charts, graphic organizers, etc.) from bell to bell.


Participants will learn how to use the ELPS and TEKS to write student-friendly content/language objectives as well as how to check for understanding throughout the lesson, providing students opportunities to speak, read, and write using newly acquired academic vocabulary in meaningful and engaging ways.

This workshop develops teacher capacity in the following T-TESS Dimensions:

Instruction(2.1): Achieving Expectations

Instruction(2.3): Communication

Instruction(2.4): Differentiation

Anchor Charts as Part of the Sheltered Social Studies Classroom (SU1634558)

In this make-and-take session, secondary social studies teachers will learn how to create and use anchor charts as effective, engaging, and student-friendly tools to support instruction for their ELLs by reinforcing key concepts, skills, and vocabulary.

Participants will learn how to use an anchor chart to drive a lesson/unit, meaningfully incorporating it throughout the lesson to promote students' academic speaking, writing, and metacognitive skills. With the hands-on practice provided in this workshop, participants will be able to begin the school year with the fundamental knowledge and skills to create quality anchor charts. You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with peers to create your own anchor charts in preparation for the first instructional unit.

This workshop develops teacher capacity in the following T-TESS Dimensions:
