LA 8.2 Sharing Development as an ESL Teacher

Growing as an ESL Teacher by Sharing My Learning and Commitments

Employ a variety of strategies, materials and resources in standards-based ESL and content instruction.

Assessment: 25 pts.

Time: 40

Teachers who understand quality teaching for EL students can continue reflectiin on their practice to provide stronger learning experiences for students. 

Students have learned about how to teach second language learners and promote their language and literacy development. They have prepared through reflection to share successful learning experiences they have developed through SIOP and developing MSDLAs. They will share in groups and then share with the entire class.


Part one: 

Each person will write a one minute paper. Think about what you think is the most important or helpful change or the strongest experience you have had in teaching ELs. Now write for one minute about that experience. Either begin or end with a clear statement of the meaning of what you are sharing. (Turn in to the teacher at the end of class).

    Part two: 

    Each person  will take a minute to share their most important learning or some part of their one minute paper.
