ESL Classroom Strategies That Compel Students to Communicate

ESL Classroom Strategies That Compel Students to Communicate | English language teaching resources | Scoop.it
Discusses the strategies used in ESL classrooms to compel students to participate in discussions and communicate effectively in and outside of the classroom.
Vannessa MissoVeness's insight:

Thanks for this suggestion. I've been involved in EAL for a many years now. I believe in making our EAL pedagogy explicit to learners so that we involve them in their learning. The journey/process of learning is of great significance as compared to the end result. Skills last a life time and built up upon and improved. Thus, these skills will have greater impact on the outcomes.

Vannessa MissoVeness's insight:

Collaborative teaching and learning - it's the keystone in a school with a large body of ELLs. EAL and mainstream teachers need to sit down and start a dialogue about working together. When we model our cooperation, then our students can model our example and work together, too.

Vannessa MissoVeness's insight:

Our pedagogy comes first. Then we teach through whatever means is available to us - traditional black boards, televisions, interactive whiteboards, online games and apps. The point is we need to know our trade before we can trade in our chalk and talk. TLO: Part Two: Putting the Pedagogy First | TESOL Blog http://shar.es/8bez3 via @sharethis
