Foldables and VKVs for ELL/ESL

This lively session includes background on Foldables—interactive, research-based, hands-on graphic organizers—and their uses, research behind Foldables, and relevant ELL/ESL strategies. The session is 90% hands-on, with participants creating their own examples as they are led by the presenter throughout the presentation. There is a strong emphasis on vocabulary tools, including Dinah's Visual Kinesthetic Vocabulary (VKV) manipulatives, since vocabulary is the greatest predictor of academic success. Learn how to strengthen skills and create study aids that will enhance student comprehension and engage learners. Participants will leave with multiple examples ready for immediate application.

Workshop is available in half-day (2.5-3.0 hours) or full-day (5.5-6.0 hours) format. Participant materials provided.
