Classroom Instruction that Works with ELL’s (K12)


You have a new student starting in your class…and they don’t speak any English. How will you handle this child’s education? Should he/she be held to the same standards as the other students?

Jane Hill and Kirsten Miller break down the processes that an ELL needs to succeed in your classroom. In Classroom Instruction that Works with ELL’s, they examine ELL friendly strategies like the QAR Strategy, the Thinking Language Matrix, Feedback, Homework, Cooperative Grouping, Differentiation, Reciprocal Teaching and Student Talk Time and show how each strategy can be used to provide results and accommodate learning.

In this course you will examine ELL strategies and determine their effectiveness for your classroom. You will reflect on your own teaching and implement methods and practical strategies for teaching ELL’s.
