In my last post, I shared Colorin Colorado’s new multimedia project filmed with ELLs and ESL teachers in Poughkeepsie, NY. This week, I’d like to delve a little deeper into one of the high school lessons taught by ESL teacher Anne Formato.
Looking for resources to help understand and address learning differences in the classroom? This collection of videos and resources offers strategies teachers can use to reach all students in an inclusive environment.
My two books on student motivation were published by Eye On Education, and older copies have a code you need to type on the Eye on Education website in order to access the many student figures in the book so they could be downloaded.
In my third post of the new school year, I’ll share with you more new resources that will support ELLs with instruction aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.
Scholastic has just unveiled a new website focused on the joy of reading. It includes a number of materials, including videos and a free downloadable book with contributions from educators about their own reading experiences.
This is an excellent example of how to scaffold instruction by not only starting out with the student friendly objective, but using the standards in ways that will prepare the ELL students to reach success while aiming higher.
