ESL/ELL Workshop - strategies

Hi everyone;

Me and a few other teachers have been asked to present an interactive workshop about evaluating and responding to the needs of ELLs. I do not have the additional qualifications to teach ESL.

I was wondering if any of you are willing to share your strategies and online resources, and any ideas for handouts that I can give to the participants. So far I have some strategies listed:

-Create predictable routines & signals to reduce anxiety. Be consistent!

-Provide language support through visual images.

-Use real things or concrete objects to build background knowledge & vocabulary.

Thank you!

Wow Becca!

Thank you for sharing this wonderful site! I found a wealth of information and resources!
I love the fact that they have tip sheets for parents in so many languages!
I'm definately going to hand some out to my parents!

THANKS AGAIN

Go on line and look for Conceptions and Misconceptions article. Print out the conception/misconception and ask teachers to decide if the statement is one or the other and validate. It was very eye opening. You could just do a mini workshop on building background or the difference between Tier 1, 2, and 3 words.
