English language learners often struggle with reading history texts and understanding the wording in policies and laws that surround history. Through the practice of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), learners simultaneously learn history and English. In this webinar, join Shelly Terrell as she shows you how to teach history with various instructional methods to help language learners. These include videos, websites, and multimedia tools that help language learners visualize historical events.

Very useful! I really like the incorporation of videos, websites, and other multimedia tools because these do really help with visualizing. History books can be very difficult to read, especially for students learning English as an additional language. These strategies are a big help!
Thank you.

Lots of great resources that could easily be implemented into the classroom or exploration in the computer lab.

There was a brief discussion of CLIL and then talked about PBL and went over a lot of website resources.
