Help English learners (Els) acquire academic vocabulary using podcasts. Podcast lessons are an engaging way to achieve proficiency by introducing new vocabulary, sentence variety, and content specific language.

You’ll gain access to listening and speaking strategies that integrate grade-level rigor and simultaneously develop the content knowledge, language, and literacy skills necessary for English learners to succeed.

Research shows that language proficiency won’t increase without opportunities to practice using academic language. Attendees will receive updated research findings and instructional practices that build these critical oral language skills:

  • Authentic active listening
  • Critical thinking
  • Academic speaking
  • Conversing

This discussion will draw from Zweirs’ book, Next Steps with Academic Conversations and Brady-Myerov’s new book Listen Wise: Teach Students to be Better Listeners.

Speakers
Dr. Jeff Zwiers, Ed.D.
Author of various publications on literacy and academic conversations. Senior researcher at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, and the director of professional development for Understanding Language.
Monica Brady-Myerov
Author of Listen Wise: Teach Students to be Better Listeners, CEO & Founder of Listenwise, former NPR award-winning reporter.
