Who are emergent bilingulas

Emergent bilinguals are a group of students who did not learn English as their first language. These students are continuing to learn and use their home language while also learning another language.

Emergent bilinguals are often referred to as English Language learners (ELLs), English Learners (ELs) or Multilingual Learners (MLLs)

Several text boxes offer interactivity, featuring audio, expanding options, or linking to other websites. I invite you to explore by clicking around to gain a deeper understanding!

Why do we need to learn about Emergent Bilinguals?

15,107 emergent bilinguals were enrolled in Rhode Island public schools within the 2020-2021 school year

The number of emergent bilinguasl has increased by 97% from 2017-2021

Preservice Teachers in Rhode Island do not have to obtain emergent bilingual training

The lack of preservice training contributes to the achievement gap between ELLs and native Egnlish Speakers

Teachers are unable to meet the academic needs of ELLs

The goal of this presentation is to provide you with background knowledge that prepares you for entering the classroom

Planning and Implementing instruction

Create content that is culturally and linguistically relevant

Make decisions based on language and content outcomes

Collaboration allows for sucessfull learning

Adapt materials to provide comprehensible input

Teachers must use evidence-based, student centred, interactive approaches to create a supportive learning environment. In order to meet students' needs teacher must make instructional decisions based on their student's individual strengths and weakness. In order to effectively do this teachers should collaborate with family and staff.

Emergent Bilinguals are learning language and content at the same time!

Ways to adapt materials

Teachers must apply assessment principles to analyze emergent bilinguals. Teachers use data to inform lessons and make decisions that support learning. This data should be communicated to educators and families.

Summary

Assessment & Evaluation

Use assessment for identification, placement and reclasifcation.

Give formal and informal assessments to assess language and content goals.

Elements of efefctive assessmnet

Make administrative considerations to make assessments more appropriate.

Have a knowledge of validity and reliability. Recognize how these factors impact assessments.

What is reliability and validity? Learn more about assessments!

"States must expect that all educators will hold ELL students to high academic content standards. However, when students are being assessed for content knowledge in a language they are still learning, fair and valid (i.e., meaningful) interpretations depend on clear measurement of the construct (e.g., avoiding irrelevant construct variance caused by measuring language abilities rather than the intended mathematics or science knowledge) and appropriately implementing testing accommodations."

Collaboration is a key aspect of teaching. this includes collaboration with educators and families. Teachers must be aware of policies, legislation, and the rights of students. With this comes advocating for emergent bilinguals to ensure their rights are met. In order to do this teachers should be continuous learners.

Professionalism & Leadership

Effectively collaborate to teach and advocate for emergent bilingual

Use knowledge of policies to advocate for emergent bilingual

Engage in self-assessment to make adjustments when necessary.
