Making Meaningful Inquiry Possible for English Learners
This panel presents a re-conceptualized framework regarding making inquiry in English/language arts classrooms possible for English Learners (ELs): (1) authentic assessment that recognizes ELs’ cultural, linguistic capital; (2) tailored instruction that focuses on integration of drawing, discussion, and intentional use of various text types; and (3) pedagogical praxis, a critical element to bring about instructional change.
