Using a Video Game to Teach Academically Complex Social Studies Language and Content to ELLs
Join iCivics and Share My Lesson for a webinar on game based learning that will engage your English language learner students (ELLs).
Available On Demand
Learn all about iCivics' wildly popular and newly upgraded game, Do I Have a Right?, now featuring English language voiceover, an embedded glossary, an illustrated "Rights Review", and a brand new digital scaffolding tool. There's even an option to play in Spanish (¿Tengo Algún Derecho?) ! But the game is just the meat of the iCivics game sandwich. Come explore all of the new resources to make the sandwich complete, including a new Extension Pack with suggested ELL modifications for different levels of language learners and an illustrated Amendments Guide. This workshop is designed for social studies and ELA teachers alike. Whether you have a classroom full of language learners or just one, it's a "can't miss" professional learning experience to help make the academically complex language and content of the Constitution more accessible to all learners.
Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session.
