Teaching Reading & Writing to ESL

Hi,

I am currently pursuing an endorsement in ESL. I have already started taking my very first ESL course this summer. For my final project, I will be writing a research paper on the "Best practices/most effective instruction on teaching reading and writing to language minority students." Since I am a novice teacher in ESL, I came here for your expertise!

Would anyone be willing to share their thoughts and ideas?

For instance:

-What kinds of things do you do in your classroom to teach reading and writing? (for example: Shared Language Experience)

-What kinds of programs/teaching strategies do you find most effective in teaching reading and writing?

-Does your school use specific computer programs or other special reading/writing programs for instruction?

Any piece of advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Also, I'm having difficulty finding information about my research topic on the web. Does anyone know of a great web site that possibly focuses on teaching ESL's in reading and writing, or any other web site that maybe helpful?

Thanks so much!!!

I can't atach the links, but using a search engine (Google, Yahoo, ASK) type:

ESL curriculum

ESL elementary curriculum...


This will give you a few sites with best practices and some new research!
