I currently work in a Title 1 school with an 80% ELL population. When you teach English Language Learners, it is important to provide many visuals in your lessons to make sure your students are understanding what is being taught.
As a teacher, I tend to focus on activities as a way to engage student-centered learning. In my classroom, there is a responsibility placed on the students for meeting the expectations I have for them. My students learn how to work with and actively participate with other students, use critical thinking skills, and problem solve. I provide the students with tools to ensure these successes.
