    @TheTechProfe

  • The 1,413,549 English learners constitute 22.7

    percent of the total enrollment in California

    public schools.

    KEY PRINCIPLES & DIGITAL TOOLS FOR ELL INSTRUCTION IN CCSS

  • A total of 2,685,793 students speak a language other than English in their

    homes. This number represents about 43.1 percent of the state's

    public school enrollment.

  • The majority of English learners (73%) are enrolled in the elementary grades, K-6th. The rest (27%) are enrolled in the secondary grades, 7-12th, and in the

    ungraded category.

  • CLASSROOM IMPLICATIONS

    Provide literature that is culturally relevant, age

    appropriate, and accessible to ELs at their current level of English

    acquisition

    Use online writing to help students develop relationships and practice English with other

    students. Make it part of a language and cultural exchange

    where English-speaking students -- who often take foreign language

    classes -- also practice the first language of the ESL student

    Allow students to research topics of interest. If students are truly

    interested in a topic, they will probably learn more language

    Provide a space where all languages have equal power. Have

    students work together to complete a service-learning task,

    interview each other, or work on a project using both languages

    Take advantage of professional learning opportunities

    specifically to benefit English learners. For example, join a

    professional organization such as TESOL or the National Association

    for Bilingual Education (NABE)

    Get to know students as human beings. Honor the resources they

    bring to the classroom and recognize their multiple literacies

  • BOARD WORK & ERROR

    CORRECTIONIn a non-ELL classroom using the

    board and error correction is important, but in an ELL classroom its a must. Students need to hear

    out and see instructions, new concepts, words, definitions on the board. Visuals in an ELL classroom

    helps students with: memory, clarification, recognition,

    understanding, reminding and error correction

  • SUPPORT ELLS WITH SCANNABLE

    TECHNOLOGYScannable technology provides

    opportunities for students to quickly and easily interact with a

    variety of content. In a differentiated classroom, children should have access to resources

    and support materials that will push them toward success.

    ELLs can be supported by a variety of tech tools. This includes

    scannable technology like quick response (QR) codes and

    augmented reality (AR) triggers

  • WRITTEN VS. AUDIO VS. MOVIE

    DIRECTIONSSome of your ELLs may be

    conversationally fluent in English but struggle with reading in this language. In addition to giving them written directions

    in English, you can provide an activity sheet or assignment that will link to a URL where they can hear the directions read aloud for them. You may decide to try

    this strategy if your students are stronger readers and you want them to practice

    their listening skills. Another option is to provide audio directions for students in their native language so that they can focus on the task at hand rather than

    struggle with following written directions.
