Enhancing Secondary MLL/ELL Students’ Experience of Literary Works Through the Arts

March 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Each Monday in March, the Collaborative is featuring different MLL/ELL educators to share current classroom practices that yield results for their students. In this SEAT-FREE session with current practitioners Karen Jackson and Lindsay Hockaday, attendees will discuss arts integration methods for breaking down literary texts in middle and high school coursework. Arts integration offers a creative way to gain more meaningful comprehension of work typically deemed too difficult for students learning English.
