Supporting English Learners in the Primary Classroom

Supporting English Learners in the Primary Classroom | Tips & Tricks for Teaching English Language Learners | Scoop.it

"Common Core Standards ask students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others in math; ask and answer questions about key details in a text; and participate in collaborative conversations about topics and texts. Students are expected to explain their thinking and build on others’ talk in conversation.

 

But what if your students don’t speak English?"

Mafe Dominguez's curator insight, May 7, 10:34 AM
This article is very interesting because it clearly explains some tips that we have to take  into account in order to help children to achieve EL. It explains that students learn better in a classroom that has "Low-affective filter" some ways to get the affective filter lower are: Get to know students and families Build positive rapport, establishing a relationship with each student Celebrate diversity, using literature, photos, and examples reflecting students’ ethnicity Avoid overemphasizing language mistakes and praise attempts Promote collaboration and mutual respect. In the EFL classroom, it is also important to give students enough time to think about their answers, give students opportunities to talk while they are doing other activities; it is also important to show authentic material to the students.
