    • Engage learners at every English proficiency level in academic discussions
    • Facilitate productive student interaction and collaboration with clear language targets
    • Design and assign response frames that model and scaffold competent communication
    • Encourage thoughtful elaboration and justification during lesson discussions

    WORKSHOP PRESENTER:

    Kate Kinsella, Ed.D. is an adjunct teacher educator at San Francisco State University and a highly-sought after speaker and consultant to school districts and state departments throughout the US regarding development of academic language and literacy across the K-12 subject areas. Her 25 year teaching career focus has been equipping youths from diverse backgrounds with the communication, reading and writing skills to be career and college ready. A consummate “teacher’s teacher”, Dr. Kinsella maintains active K-12 classroom involvement by writing and implementing curriculum, co-teaching lessons, and providing practical mentoring for teachers and instructional coaches. Her extensive publishing record includes articles, chapters, English learners’ dictionaries, English Language development curriculum, and reading intervention programs.

    3/4/19-Tools to Support English Learners in Constructing Competent Written Responses 

    (Grades 3-10) 

    with Presenter Kate Kinsella, Ed.D.

    Monday, March 4, 2019
    Hosted by: Orange County Department of Education
    Location: D Conference Center, Rooms D1001-3, 200 Kalmus Drive, Costa Mesa,  CA 92626

    8:30 a.m.— 3:00 p.m. - Registration Includes Lunch 

    Workshop Description: 

    English Learners and struggling readers in grades 3-10 need informed, interactive and systematic instruction across the curriculum that addresses their academic English language and rhetorical voids.  Dr. Kinsella details cross-curricular writing instruction imperatives for educators serving English learners and striving readers, including a focused yet accessible analytic rubric for each assignment, targeted lessons on language and rhetorical devices for specific writing types, explicit analysis of an appropriate writing model, and brief, frequent doses of interactive, teacher-meditated writing practice to build critical competencies for longer, independent assignments. 

    Participants will learn essential ELD instructional routines including effective ways to:

    • Introduce and unpack a model paper exemplifying the critical elements of a writing type:  informative, opinion, argument
    • Frontload rhetorical conventions and academic language for specific writing types
    • Design academic interactions that guide students in applying vocabulary, syntax and rhetorical devices they can deploy in subsequent written work
    • Structure teacher-mediated doses of scaffolded writing to build foundational competencies for extended responses
    • Review well-written language objectives addressing lesson writing demands
