six digestible sections - will give you strategies and plenty of example
activities you can take directly into your treatment sessions to make

Students in grades 6–12
frequently struggle with both the content and use of academic language. As they
move through the secondary grades, they are confronted with increasingly more
expository language, as opposed to the mostly narrative language they saw in
elementary grades. This course explores the fascinating relationship
between these two language structures, which provides a strong basis for our
therapeutic interventions as speech-language pathologists. Judy Montgomery
provides examples of linking narratives to expository text to ultimately help
students successfully use academic language at the secondary level. Montgomery shares strategies to use in different service delivery settings
(one-on-one intervention vs. in the classroom).
You will be able to:
the difference between narrative (stories) and expository language (analyzing
facts) to secondary students
the seven expository text structures to redesign a familiar narrative
a lesson that uses academic language in the classroom to increase comprehension
and expression of curricular content
