My Students

It is hard to describe a typical day in my classroom because I like to mix it up a lot! It is my goal, every year, to challenge and engage students in a variety of ways, especially through projects and real-world examples.

My students come from all different backgrounds, and it is really interesting to see them all learning together and from each other.

High-quality early education can help children develop critical skills like social-emotional regulation and communication which promotes lifelong learning.

Technology will help the English Language Learners have this experience in a foreign classroom.

My Project

Software, online tools, and other technologies help students hone basic language skills that they can later apply in authentic social settings. With these Chromebook licenses, I as the teacher, will be able to monitor and control the websites students visit. I will also be able to control what they see on their screen, to make sure they are always on task and understanding the material presented to them. The students will be able to translate the learning material and add their own notes to the learning material, saving it and reviewing it later on. Students spend most of their day listening and not interacting with the foreign language as much. But technology mixes things up, captures students' attention, and engages them in a way traditional classroom instruction doesn't.

Educators strongly recommend individual computer programs and other technologies because they say they accelerate the acquisition of phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and reading comprehension skills and other language building blocks in English Language Learners.

The key is to use technologies that allow learners to focus in on text and to engage with real-life audiences and issues. The biggest problem related to English-language learning is not so much developing oral-conversation skills but gaining academic written-language skills. One of the things that have been shown is that when students talk about things in online discussions, they use more complicated vocabulary because it is easier to see what's been written by others and incorporate it into their own writing.
