Overview

Who: Educators Pre-K through 12th grade

What:  This practical, hands-on session introduces educators to the language “functions” embedded in disciplinary content standards. The interactive session moves beyond vocabulary lists and offers educators the opportunity to identify what Key Language Uses (e.g. Inform, Narrate, Explain, Argue) are embedded in the content standards and what associated Language Functions and Features the standards ask students master to demonstrate their conceptual understanding of content. We provide modeled examples and opportunities to intentionally plan for how to support students as they learn these processes. Additionally, we will discuss ways to access and activate students’ “funds of knowledge” so they can make real and relevant connections to the content standards, activating their assets (e.g. home language skills, background knowledge, and content literacy skills).

When: Saturday, February 25th, 2023 

  • 9:00am-4:00pm

Where: Virtual– via Zoom

Policies

Payment Options
You have the option to pay via Credit Card or Purchase Order.

If your school or district is paying for your registration or you would like to pay via invoice using a PO or check, make sure that you have the code needed to waive the registration fee ready. If your district contact doesn't have this code or you would like for us to create a code for you, you can contact Shannon Rodriguez at sdpenton@uga.edu for help.

Refund Policy
No refunds for cancellation. Even if payment is collected at a later date (i.e. via purchase order or check), completion of registration serves as confirmation of your attendance. Payment will still be collected if you choose to cancel before payment is processed.

Substitution Policy
Substitutions are permitted up to 1 week in advance in order to ensure sufficient time to complete the pre-course assignments and make the necessary administrative adjustments. Districts and individuals are responsible for transferring course materials from original registrant to the substitute registrant. If the t-shirt size is incorrect, substitute registrants may return their shirts to CLASE (at their own shipping costs) in exchange for a different size.
