Most schools and classrooms in the United States have
ELL students. Now is the time for you to begin thinking
and planning for what you will do to make sure
ELL students in your classes are successful learners.
Make your top ten list of steps to take to ensure ELL
student success.

Can you explain this better please? and give me like an example to look at? thank you

    ELL used to be LEP or some other acronym.
    * ELL = English language learner
    * LEP = limited English proficient

    It doesn't really matter which term you use; the point is to help these kids learn English, and not just "playground" English. They need to learn English well enough to function successfully in academic settings.

    Here are some sites with some ideas for you. (Hint: Whatever you learn to do for ELL students will work well for all your students!)

    There are many others, but these seem to be among the best!

  • AE.. is this right -

    Use visual aids often.
    Incorporate hands-on activities to demonstrate concepts.
    Allow sufficient wait time.
    Model spoken language, but refrain from embarrassing ELL students with verbal correction in front of others.
    Prepare outlines for lectures and distribute to ELL learners.
    Encourage skim and scan reading strategies for textbook assignments.
    Avoid forcing language learners to speak. Encourage them to contribute when they are ready.

    All look good.

    But remember what I said above -- what works well for ELL students works well for all students.

    Use these teaching strategies with all your students, and they'll all learn much more than if you don't. You also don't want to be treating the ELL students noticeably differently (e.g., handing only the ELL students outlines).
