"International school teachers know that “all teachers are language teachers” and must embed explicit language instruction into their context. But what does that exactly look like?
Language targets are a keystone element of nurturing the needs of multilingual students learning a new language. Language targets focus on vocabulary, grammar, and discourse needed to be successful in grade level expectations."
