The purpose of this course is to prepare the MA teachers with the knowledge and skills to effectively shelter their content instruction so that our growing population of English learners (ELs) can access curriculum, achieve academic success, and contribute their multilingual and multicultural resources as participants and future leaders in the 21st century global economy. The course has three overarching goals: 1. To help teachers effectively carry out their responsibility for the teaching and learning of ELs as well as to understand the social and cultural issues that contribute to and impact the schooling of ELs. 2. To expand teachers’ knowledge of how language functions within academic content teaching and learning, and how children and adolescents acquire a second language. 3. To provide teachers with practical, research-based protocols, methods, and strategies to integrate subject-area content, language, and literacy development—per the expectations of the World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) English Language Development (ELD) standards—and thus to support EL students’ success with all state academic standards.

Do your interventions result in long-term learning of motor skills at home, in the school and in the community?
Train the Brain! will provide the latest evidence in motor learning principles (MLPs) for children and youth with and without
disabilities. The presenter will discuss the research findings and rationale behind such principles as the provision of verbal
instruction, demonstration, feedback, variability, errorless training, frequency, specificity and salience.
Carlo will discuss how to incorporate these principles in the child’s therapeutic intervention and daily routine to help with
generalization of skills and improve participation at home, in school and in the community. Participants will learn a stepby-step approach in selecting the task, designing the task & the environment, and teaching the task using case studies.
Carlo will describe the application of MLPs in children with the most common childhood diagnoses (cerebral palsy,
developmental coordination disorder, and autistic spectrum disorder) so participants can translate what they learned from
the session into real-life practice. To further promote generalization of skills, participants will practice how to use a motor
learning framework during collaborative consultations with families and educators to design an MLP-rich environment in
school, at home and in the community. More
