Understanding key English language structures allows teachers to target distinct areas of need in the language development of ELLs.
Create a digital toolkit using a tool of your choice (e.g., Padlet, Trello) to display information about the following areas of language: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics.
This topic will address phonology and morphology as they apply to the teaching of ELLs. You will complete the remainder of your digital toolkit in the next topic.
For each language structure (phonology and morphology) include the following:
- A one-sentence definition of the language structure.
- At least 2-3 sentences explaining why the language structure is important for language and academic learning for ELLs.
- Four classroom activities to support the development of the language structure and a brief explanation of how the activities can be differentiated for various English language proficiencies of ELLs.
- One at-home activity and a website link for families to assist with the development of the language structure at home. Include a 2-3 sentence explanation of how the at-home activity can address the various English language proficiencies of ELLs.
Support your digital toolkit with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
Submit the resources and a link to your digital toolkit in a single document.
While APA Style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines.
