(Collier and Ovando, 1998). Students in the ESL program receive the instruction of their level of English proficiency, so they can learn the English from the very basic level. Once they get better with their English skills, they will be able to move out the ESL program and be as competitive as the native speakers of English in other subject classes. The first decades of ESL programs fails to help students with academic work in math, science, social studies, and other curricular areas but English. In order to improve this situation, ESL programs started to focus more in helping students with their academic works during the 1950s and 1960s (Collier and Ovando, 1998).
All these strategies gives all students an equal opportunity to practice English, participation and involvement. ELLs students when it’s time to read or participate in class they may be reluctant to speak because of their lack of proficiency in English or feel uncomfortable in an environment where they have to share their ideas.

ESP arises from learning principles for English used by readers for the first time and can be approached through language centered method to analyze its nature.It understands approach is derived from its development and design through different methods, models and theories involved in trying to explain their existence.
A full range of services are provided to meet individual needs. One of these services, English as a Second Language, provides support in general education classrooms for students whose first language is not English. The English Language Learning (ELL) Program utilizes various instructional models where students work within a classroom setting, in small groups or individually
Inclusive Classrooms” by Sally Spencer from Interdisciplinary Journal of Teaching and Learning because it focused on a population of students that is near and dear to my heart, special needs students. In the article, the author looks at using universal design for learning (UDL) as a tool for planning motivating and engaging lessons in inclusive classrooms.
Classes in ESL Services are designed for their students’ needs and the faculty helps them to achieve their English goals. The English Language Program (ELP) has not been fully developed. The class I observed is just beginning to incorporate the needs of non-English speaking students due to the need of ESL students. A teacher assists 4 students.
The three-week introduction to instructional design (changed from two weeks) for the four department heads can be produced and taught in three months at a proposed cost of $40340 (or approximately 50808 less 20%). The technology includes the in-house learning management system along with audio/video (a/v) design beginning with a prototype. Based on this examination, this project can expand the effectiveness and efficiency of instruction at Ged’s World.
Students explore the idea that anyone can publish on the Internet, so not all sites are equally trustworthy. They need to carefully evaluate the sites they use for research, and then decide which ones they can trust.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.K.4: vocabulary enhancing standard. Students will be able to identify unknown (new) words found in a text and know them
The new English and EAL study design received most intense debate as they are the only primary core units that are compulsory for every VCE students. While local educators proposed for a more practical approach to the new English/EAL curriculum with stronger emphasis on speaking, reading and creativity in students’ use of the language instead of focus on essay based text response and final exam. However, state policy makers prefered to remain the strong academic focus in the new curriculum and ensure all students reach a certain level of academic standard through SAC (school assessed coursework) and final exam. This essay will discuss the essence of a good curriculum and then compare those two different approaches by review a number of academic literature in order to discuss similarity, strength and weakness of both approaches. The last part of this essay will discuss how the new EAL curriculum balance between the two style of approaches and potential implication teachers and schools can draw from the implementation of new EAL study design.
This analysis will analyze the process of instructional design. It will discuss the instructional design disciplines. There will be a discussion on instructional design and how it aligns with scientific methods. The ADDIE model will be detailed in this essay. The difference between instructional theory and learning theory will be compared and defined. The most important component of the instructional design process will be visited. The task that instructional designers perform will be discussed as well as the skills that he or she is required to possess. The conclusions drawn will be included.
In the 21st century, a data, and technology driven culture requires the knowledge of numbers, shapes, data, and symbols to organize, interpret, and assess quantitative information. In short, informed members of society know and do mathematics. These concepts drive the Colorado’s Department of Education (CDE) 21st century skills of collaboration, self-direction, invention, information literacy, critical thinking, and reasoning. Colorado’s educational standards are set to ensure that all children are acquiring and graduating with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in today’s world (Colorado Department of Education, 2015).
The art of teaching English as a second language is a natural and intrinsic blend of the student, the facilitator and the four language skills.
To be an ESL student in the regular classroom is not easy for the students and the teachers. Researchers agree that most of the time, the high school and middle school teachers are less prepared to receive this type of students in their classroom (DelliCarpini). In regular classroom is difficult for the teachers to think they have different type of the students in the classroom. ESL students do not like to ask a lot of questions even they are not understanding what the teachers say.
