b asic i nterpersonal c ommunicative s kills
Basic InterpersonalCommunicative Skills
  • Universal aspects of language proficiency that are normally acquired by all native speakers of any language
  • Usually by ages 5-6, all children have developed BICS in their first language
  • Language skills needed for every face-to-face comunication (personal and social situations)
  • Contexts are clear and generally concrete
  • Not necessarily related to academic success
  • May take up to 2 years to develop in a second language (L2)
c ognitive a cademic l anguage p roficiency
Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency
  • Those language skills associated with literacy and cognitive development
  • Language skills required to go beyond ordinary social communication
  • Cognitively demanding, decontextualized
  • Language skills needed for reasoning, problem solving, or other cognitive processes required for academic achievement in subject matter
  • CALP development in a first language (L1) contributes to the development of CALP in a second language (L2)
  • May take 5-7 years to develop in a second language (sometimes 9-11 years, depending upon L1 CALP, age and other variables)
communication tools
Communication Tools
  • Language Line
    • A “conference call”
    • District supplied through AT&T
    • Place the call to LL, tell them the language of the person, their name and phone number
    • Explain what you will be talking about and any specialized vocabulary you will be using
    • Translator places the call to the parent
    • Talk to the parent, giving time for the translator to translate for you.
    • IT’S EASY!!
communication tools1
Communication Tools
  • TransACT
    • A new data base coming to RTMSD soon

    • Includes some “housekeeping” forms schools often need
if you get nothing else
If you get nothing else…
  • Please think of your students as a RESOURCE for you and your classes
  • Students are not coming in with a DEFICIT just because they do not speak English.
  • Students come with a broader WORLD VIEW and EXPERIENCES your native speakers do not have (most likely).
  • American students can LEARN from the ESOL students as they HELP the newcomers learn English.
