New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages - Event Information

Event Name:Gamification in the Classroom for English Language Learners, Dr. Sandra Quiñones-Hemphill
Description:Games have always been an integral part of learning for students from infancy into young adulthood. It is important to explore the elements of games that resonate with children and teenagers. In this webinar, we will explore different types of games that can be embedded into a lesson to teach language skills to foster collaboration, literacy skills, problem solving, and confidence. This session will allow teachers to think about how taking a different approach in their lessons can turn passive learners into active learners. Examples of games, technology tools, websites, and additional resources will be shared.

At this webinar’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
Acquire interactive games that will benefit ELLs academic language and social language skills
Consider the language domains that will be activated in the classroom to move students from one language proficiency level to the next.
Implement talk moves and collaborative conversations that will enhance student academic talk in the classroom

NYS TESOL members are eligible to receive 1 hour of CTLE credit for attending.
