Learn how to use authentic listening resources to engage ELLs students in social studies content. Listening is a crucial 21st century skill and an integral part of both the Common Core and WIDA Standards. Using online resources and model lesson plans, this workshop will present new ways to use audio with ELL students to scaffold the audio and focus on language objectives while staying in the same content area as the rest of the class. Participants will learn how to apply the WIDA performance definitions to listening activities that bridge the gap between controlled classroom language and the authentic language found on public radio. Presenters will share the latest scientific research on listening and then explore websites where teachers can find audio resources to use in class. In addition, participants will examine model lesson plans and explore activities aligned with the Common Core standards to enhance comprehension of authentic listening experiences. Researchers lament that resources for listening instruction are simply lacking. While teaching listening using real world events and real world voices can be challenging, teachers with reliable pedagogical techniques can bridge the divide that prevents ELLs from accessing information that is pertinent to their full participation in the global community. Teachers will leave with the resources and methods to facilitate their students' abilities to better access aural content. (Presenter(s): Monica Brady-Myerov, CEO, Listen Current)
