NYSESLAT Linguistic Demands Series- Part 1: Writing

Each year, students identified as English Language Learners take the NYSESLAT to determine their proficiency in English in four modalities. In this workshop, participants will take a close look at what is expected of students in the writing portions of the test and interact with the NYSESLAT Targets (Targets of Measure). Additionally, participants will look at how this information, combined with knowledge of a student's proficiency level can inform instructional practice. Teachers will be able to sequence writing lessons in the English as a New Language classroom and better understand the linguistic demands of the writing portion of the NYSESLAT. This session not only prepares teachers for scoring the NYSESLAT but also helps prepare appropriate learning targets tailored to student abilities and needs. 

Discovering the Hallmarks of Advanced Literacies for Diverse Learners

Today's students need to develop an increasingly complex set of advanced literacy skills and competencies in order succeed in the classroom and beyond. Advanced literacies refers to the skills and competencies that enable communication in diverse ways and promote the use of text for a variety of purposes. When educators adopt advanced literacies as an instructional end goal, they adopt a set of practices and guidelines that can be implemented in all content areas. These practices are known as the Hallmarks of Advanced Literacies (Lesaux & Galloway). In this session, participants will explore the four "Hallmarks” and learn how they apply to the linguistically diverse learners in our classrooms.

The Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development (CIPD) works directly with component school districts to develop offerings that align to the NYS Department of Education’s Reform Agenda and district initiatives. In partnership with our districts, we support state and district reforms by contracting with nationally recognized authors and presenters to provide workshops. We then offer follow-up sessions and coaching to assist with implementation.
