Developing Oracy in Emergent Bilingual Students
Oral language is the foundation of literacy development. For many of our Emergent Bilingual students, the challenge is compounded because many also come from low-income households. Economically disadvantaged students come to school with a much smaller repertoire of words that have been learned indirectly as compared to nonpoor students—just over ten million words by kindergarten versus twenty-five to forty million words for nonpoor students (Hart & Risley, 1995, as cited in Jensen, 2016). In this session, participants will learn a variety of instructional strategies designed to foster oral language development.
