Classnotes Podcast (August 29, 2007) Because of English language learners’ different English proficiency levels, teachers often struggle to find ways to have students actively participate in their learning. This is particularly the case for content area teachers who may have had little or no training in teaching English language learners.
IDRA is helping teachers learn, reflect and adapt instructional strategies so that all their students are engaged and learning the content and academic language. Kristin Grayson, M.Ed., an IDRA education associate outlines the engagement-based sheltered instruction model that she developed at IDRA and describes its research base.
Kristin is interviewed by Bradley Scott, Ph.D., director of the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity.
