Fluency and ELLs

Why “context clues” are not always helpful for our ELLs: Great Strategies to Help Your ELLs Read and Improve their Reading Fluency

 

Fluency and knowledge of vocabulary are essential for reading comprehension. Come and join us December 8th at North Waco, from 4:00-5:00 for a fun and engaging ESL PLC/Bilingual Teacher Academy where teachers will learn research-based strategies for improving reading fluency. Many ELLs struggle with fluency and not being familiar with many of the vocabulary words in text, makes strategies such as “using context clues” not as effective as we would hope. Come join us as we learn about fluency and ELLs and how to help English Language Learners improve fluency skills via engaging and highly effective strategies. This will be a great session and we will also be presenting a special visual presentation celebrating the hard work of ESL and Bilingual colleagues around the district who are making an impact in children’s lives each day! We look forward to seeing there!
