We began designing this teacher support pack – full of resources for all teachers of English Language Learners – which in fact are all teachers now, across content areas and grade levels. We sat down to speak with a colleague and friend (who also happens to be the ESL teacher in our building). She provided us with some insight as to where there were holes in the support that her students needed, as well as what has been helpful in providing them with a positive language learning environment. She mentioned there not being enough time for her to meet with general education teachers to support them, and not enough materials to provide them with helping their ELLs in their general education classrooms. We talked about the need for a possible “teacher support pack.” This would be something for general education teachers, in order to help guide them in creating a positive and successful learning experience for the ELLs in their classrooms and our building.
There are areas where we list books available in our classroom/school libraries, but give you a blank version where you can fill in books in your school library that help encourage language diversity and support literacy instruction. We want this to be able to meet your student needs!
Our objectives were:
• to provide teachers with an organized layout of some materials for use in their classrooms and with ELL students
• to include best practice suggestions and resources - in order to make them more readily available for general education teachers who teach ELLs
• to make the documents easy to reference, print, and read - easy enough for busy teachers to utilize without a lot of extra work
What follows is this digital teacher support pack – the first put out by The Literacy Ladies. We hope you find it helpful in supporting your ELL students!
