One more reason that people should subscribe to Mary Ann Zehr’s Learning The Language blog is because she points out items like the fact that the April issue of Educational Leadership is about Supporting English Language Learners.
Mary Ann highlights a couple of articles, including one called Best Practices For Adolescent ELL’s. After reading it, I’m happy to say that our school implements all the ones that are mentioned.
And, speaking of our school, since there’s free access to all Education Week articles this week, you might want to read the article they ran last year about our school’s work with ELL’s.
Some really good articles there! Thanks!
I do a few workshops on this subject and you can get lots of interesting reads/articles on the public part of the school site where I teach. http://setiteachers.ning.com/group/seec/forum/topics/teaching-teenagers-let-get
In particular, I highly recommend Andersen’s article Teaching Teens. Highly practical and sound minded….
