To help students learn the best, teachers are encouraged to provide students with a meaningful context to use English for authentic purposes. Content-based instruction (CBI) not only offers students a context for meaningful communication but also improves students’ subject knowledge and English skills. This presentation will discuss approaches established with CBI and how to plan an effective lesson with CBI. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to support student engagement with reading literacy in different content areas such as science, social studies and English language arts. We will also explore scaffolding techniques and hands-on activities to address students’ challenges with reading and improve their reading comprehension.
