The students I service come from a diverse background. Most students come from a family who speak a different language, other than English. They have varying ability in being able to speak and understand their native language. This can inhibit their ability to learn the English Language. As a title reading teacher, we meet them with where they are in their knowledge of the English Language, and support them with activities and instruction to learn how to read English, to what their grade level peers are able to read and comprehend.
We incorporate a variety of instructional strategies to target each student's learning style.
Our lessons are very heavy vocabulary based. When introducing a lesson, I think about what they already know or what might be confusing to them. I locate materials to support their understanding of the new vocabulary. If I'm unable to bring in the item I find pictures and/or internet websites for students to see.
I will take the knowledge provided and integrate it into my lesson plans. It will strengthen my professional learning in how to adapt instruction to best support ELL students. I will be able to implement Kagan strategies into my classroom which include cooperative learning, brain-friendly instruction, multiple intelligence's and differentiated instruction.
Every student's voice needs to be heard.
We want to make sure our students know they have a voice in their learning. The Kagan structures will incorporate the social aspect of learning which is extremely important for our struggling ELL students. The cooperative learning strategies gained will be used to give them tools to succeed!
