Utilizing Listening Comprehension to Strengthen Content/Literacy Instruction for SIFE Students

1:00 - 2:15pm EDT
Presented at: WIDA 2016

U.S. schooling is based on the assumption that students engage in continual print-based textual interaction and that content area achievement is based on the utilization of print. Often, SIFE students do not bring a literacy based tradition based on the written word; but rather a tradition derived from oral language transmission. This session will focus on the application of oral development and listening comprehension activities/skills needed to address standards-based content.
