A one-sentence definition of the language structure.
At least 2-3 sentences explaining why the language structure is important for language and academic learning for ELLs.
Four classroom activities to support the development of the language structure and a brief explanation of how the activities can be differentiated for ELLs at various language proficiencies.
One at-home activity and a website link for families to assist with the development of the language structure at home. Include a 2-3 sentence explanation of how the at-home activity can address the various English language proficiencies of ELLs.
In addition, create a separate list in your digital toolkit that includes the following:

At least five resources (e.g., journal articles, videos, books, podcasts) that provide additional professional development and knowledge in the teaching and learning of English language structures

Submit the resources and a link to your digital toolkit in a single document.
