Promoting Oral Language

Getting students to speak in an academic setting is more than just showing them vocabulary or giving them the opportunity to talk.  We'll show you 12 techniques that are guaranteed to scaffold your students into academic language fluency.

Integrating the 4 Skills

Integrating the four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, writing) can help students accelerate their fluency.  Learn how to integrate the four domains of language in any class context.

Academic Vocabulary

Teaching and learning vocabulary doesn't have to be boring.  There are ways to retain a high degree of rigor and a high degree of excitement.  We will show you the fundamentals of academic vocabulary.

Writing with Ease

It is true that there is both an art and a science to teaching writing.  We will take the magic out of the process by showing educators how to scaffold students into writing independently and successfully.

Take a Teacher Training Trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico
