Working With ELL Students in the Classroom

November 24, 2014

English Language Learners (ELL) are a joy to work with!  Sometimes, though, it's easy to feel unsure as to whether or not you are meeting their needs in the classroom.  Many college programs do not address ELL in-depth and only cover them in a lesson or two.  Today's classroom has changed greatly from what it was ten years ago, much less twenty years ago.  Today, there are many English Language Learns in the classroom, and these students are expected to meet the same Standards and take the same tests as natural born English speakers.  It's certainly a challenge but one that can most definitely be tackled.  In this post, you will find information explaining the varying language proficiency levels and methods you can use as a classroom teacher to support these students.
