Summer IC Virtual Foundational Institute #3

The Center for Latino Achievement and Success in Education (CLASE) at The University of Georgia offers a 30-hour foundational professional learning institute focused on the research-based pedagogy: Instructional Conversations (IC). This institute will give teachers access to:

  • The linguistics of second language acquisition
  • Strategies for integrating language goals into content teaching
  • Tools for encouraging collaborative conversations
  • Ways to make content and language standards real and relevant for all learners while maintaining rigor
  • Our Online Professional Learning Platform

The power of this system is that it provides a structure for teachers to integrate focused language goals with rigorous content instruction, rather than creating "one more thing" that you have to find the time for. The Instructional Conversation (IC) System is a "way of teaching" and conceptualizing teaching and learning that positively impacts student language development and opens the space for formative assessment and differentiation.

To get a better idea of what we are talking about, the research base behind ICs, and what an IC looks like, take a few minutes to view:
