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.
