This webinar was the first of a series of sessions designed to provide an opportunity to engage with national experts in an interactive learning process centered on adolescent literacy best practices used in traditional content-area classrooms in grades 4-12. David Francis, COI-ELL Strand Director and Director of TIMES, University of Houston, and Leticia Martinez and Colleen Reutebuch of The Meadows Center for Preventing Educational Risk at The University of Texas at Austin, provided an overview of two experimental studies aimed at boosting the academic achievement of older English learners. The CREATE Project at the University of Houston examined the efficacy of incorporating instructional practices associated with improved outcomes into middle-school social studies instruction as a means of enhancing vocabulary knowledge and comprehension for English language learners.
