Academic Language and Literacy Architects is designed to engage elementary through postsecondary educators in becoming language architects. This session will provide educators with resources to cultivate and maintain a learning system that insists on rigor, breaks down barriers, aligns the work, and advocates for students. Through the implementation of language-building routines and scaffolded instruction, educators will explore how they support students in using their voice, culture, identity, and language to access and produce rigorous and language-rich content. They will leverage AVID’s college and career readiness skills by coaching students to nurture and grow their own student agency, opportunity knowledge, and rigorous academic preparedness. Participants will engage in both synchronous and semi-synchronous learning. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
