My students are all recent immigrants to the United States who are now forging a new life as English Language Learners (ELLs). Like many ELLs in the public school system, my scholars are very determined to obtain the language competencies necessary to do well in their content courses and fit in with their peers! My students come from two countries: The Dominican Republic and Yemen. The majority of them arrive to us with very little English skills so it's my job to provide the appropriate environment that allows them to learn English in a comfortable, dynamic and non-threatening way.
My ELLs struggle with English, but they face this challenge with a high level of motivation and determination.
They know that they are still required to attend all of their regular classes and take challenging state exams so they put forth their best effort in my class. It brings me joy to see them compete with each other to read out loud or write their answers on the whiteboard. This shows me how committed they are to their own education.
The Language Translator Devices will be used by students who have very limited English language skills in their ESL, English Language Arts, social studies and science classes so that they will be able to better understand instructions and content. Content area teachers have struggled with first-year English Language Learners (ELLs) because of communication issues but with the translator devices in hand, students will become more independent learners, will be able to better fulfill instructional tasks and, best of all, interact more freely with their classmates!
Immigrant students with limited English skills face daunting challenges; being able to communicate at school should not be one of them.
The electronic Language Translator Devices are designed to break down communication barriers so that ELLs can integrate more quickly and smoothly into their new environment, allowing them to ask and answer questions more effectively, leading to scholastic improvements. The devices also let teachers get to know their ELLS more intimately so that they can participate more fully in classroom activities.
