A hands-on language and comprehension skill development workshop will be presented. The first half of the workshop will focus on understanding how to select and identify operational skills in content areas and develop them both in isolation and in in context. Practical strategies and different modalities will be modeled and practiced. The second half will focus on understanding basic language concepts and how to apply them in sessions when introducing those skills. Emphasis will be put on the developmental hierarchy of language and comprehension skills, and how it leads to important reasoning and critical thinking skills.
