ProLiteracy: Starting from Scratch: Working with Low-level ELL Students with Little-to-no First Language Literacy

January 4 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Research has shown that one of the primary indicators of how quickly an adult will learn a new language is their educational level in their first language. Those with high literacy levels in their first language will almost universallyoutperform their peers with lower levels of education. Working with preliterate adults presents unique challenges for English language educators. Join the webinar for proven strategies and activities based on academic research and observation to help educators working with preliterate adults learning to speak, read, and write in English. In addition, learn about the causes of low L1 literacy and how this impacts L2 acquisition.
