We are so lucky to be able to share the wonders of wildlife with audiences and students from all walks of life. This means our participants may be joining our programs, which are usually given in English, while they are still trying to learn the language. Luckily, there are easy to implement techniques that not only make your programming better for English language learners, but for everyone involved!
In this 30-minute presentation, we’ll cover what sheltered English instruction is and how to present information better to participants and students for whom English is not their first language. We’ll offer up a dedicated list of tips and tricks that can be very easily implemented into everyday instruction and some real-world examples of how these techniques have been successful in the past. Join us to learn more or to share your experience!
