Visit Inside Bell's Brain: English Learner Notebooks
to see/read more about this product!
This product includes resources you need to begin implementing data notebooks in your ELL/ESL classroom. The school where I teach is focused on teaching students how to be leaders who take responsibility for their own educational experience, so this year I have chosen a class theme of English Learners to English Leaders. In fact, we refer to our data notebooks school-wide as leadership notebooks. You may choose to use this vocabulary in your classroom setting too, or you may have different vocabulary in your classroom or school. The principles of reflecting, goal-setting, and data-tracking are the same regardless of the specific vocabulary. However, for the sake of your English learners, I do encourage consistency in your vocabulary.
This particular product is designed specifically for students who take the WIDA ACCESS test to measure their English language proficiency each year. The state where I teach is a member of this consortium, so my students participate in this yearly exam. Because of student privacy, all photographs included in this product are purely fictional. They are examples that I, myself, have made up and illustrated to provide an example for your use.
Please note that I am not affiliated with WIDA in any way.
I do not and have not worked for them at any time. This product is not approved nor endorsed by WIDA. It is simply a product created to use in conjunction with your students’ teacher reports to better help them understand their English development.
