My students are new to this country, and are working endlessly to learn the language. They are motivated by visuals because they find it much easier to understand when they can connect words with a visual.
A major obstacle for them is that they receive little or no help at home.
Most of their families do not speak or English, or they work long hours and are not home to assist with homework. They depend on their teachers for all this educational.
My ESL students learn the best when using visuals. They learn words by associating them with a picture. I currently print the visuals in black and white, making it difficult to see at times. If I am able to print in color the students will not struggle to decipher what the picture actually is.
In addition, when I print their worksheets, they will be able to see the photos and illustrations clearly.
Therefore, increasing the likelihood of comprehension. My goal is for them to reach grade level after a year in this country, it has been a challenge. I truly believe if I can provide them with visuals in color it will increase their understanding.
