This eWorkshop is designed to support K–12 content and ESL teachers as they interact with the resources introduced on the Doing and Talking Math and Science website. Through a series of reflections, video exercises, and resources, this eWorkshop helps teams maximize the content on the website and strengthen skills in three areas:
- Building on students' knowledge of languages
- Building students' ideas about how the world works
- Engaging students as questioners, thinkers, and problem solvers
At the end of the eWorkshop, teachers have an opportunity to select a pathway for further learning and corresponding resources focused on discourse–centered instruction and collaborative meaning– making in the STEM classroom.
Format: All materials will be housed in the WIDA eLearning Center, which can be accessed by participants with a WIDA Secure Portal login.
Time to Complete: 6 hours
