Delivering a Lesson to ELLs
When teaching a lesson to students learning English, I incorporate three features that I would use with any students: supporting content objectives, promoting student engagement, and pacing. The fourth feature is unique to an ELL lesson: supporting language objectives. Other students who are behind in language might benefit from the strategies listed in this chapter.
Besides "Think-Pair-Share" there are two strategies that I want to try when presenting new information. One is called "Roam and Review". After I have been teaching for about 10 minutes, students walk around the room and discuss the information with their classmates. I also want to have students write headlines to summarize important information.
