Join AFT national trainer and member Betsy Sotomayor, from Volusia County, Fla., to learn strategies that educators and tutors can use to select and teach vocabulary to support word recognition and text comprehension.

Academic language is at the heart of what English language learners need to succeed in their schoolwork. While many ELLs appear to acquire English relatively fast, their ability to understand the language of textbooks, assessment, and complex text can be overlooked. In this webinar, you will learn how to select vocabulary to teach, as well as research-based methods to teach different kinds of vocabulary words and phrases.

This webinar is part of the AFT's Reading Opens the World initiative. Find more resources and webinars in this community.
