Overview of Providing Linguistic Accommodations to English Language Learners During Instruction: (Online Course) (2010)
This online module's primary goal is to expand educators’ knowledge of ELL linguistic accommodations, so that they will be better prepared to help students attain high levels of English proficiency and academic success. After completing this module, educators will be able to distinguish among the types of programs offered to serve ELLs in Texas; understand and describe the use of the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS); explain what linguistic accommodations are and why they are needed during classroom instruction; and describe what parts of the ELPS address the need for linguistically accommodating instruction.
