I was observing a grade three class, and the teacher encouraged the student to record and depict a text to self connection they made while reading their chapter books during reading workshop.

I was curios to find out why she simply didn't allow the students to write down their answers instead of depicting it as well. She made it quite clear that she choose to do this because she did not want to isolate her ESL student from the learning process who had difficulty writing English.

I am curios to find out... how is this beneficial to the ESL Student?

  • ESL -

    During the first couple of years in an elementary ESL classroom, students cannot write English "off the top of their heads." At this state, they are encouraged to answer text questions by copying from their book. This technique is highly successful as students learn to read to find the answer. By copying the answer, they are getting practice in writing correct English.

    The ESL students in this third grade class were able to feel successful by drawing a picture as well as demonstrating that they understand the concepts of the assignment.
