Integrated Language and Content Fundamentals

Content area teachers who teach multilingual students need four fundamental understandings to design and deliver lessons that foster content learning and disciplinary language simultaneously.

CSET/Understanding Language’s four Integrated Language and Content Fundamentals provide educators with theoretical foundations along with pedagogical practices needed to plan and implement instruction that leverages the assets of our multilingual learners for success in content area classrooms. 

These fundamentals are currently being used to frame our current multiyear collaborations with teachers and administrators in San Juan Capistrano Unified School District (California), Prince William County Schools (Virginia), and New York City Public Schools (District Two--Manhattan).
