Recently, as the schools in the United States become more diverse in cultures, the needs for new English learners to learn the basic of English and grow in fluency has expanded. Nevertheless, a major of English learners receive insufficient education and have low achievement at school. Therefore, the approach of the schools for English learners might not be sufficient for them to unchain themselves from the boundary of differences in language and culture. As a result, the article “What It Takes for English Learners to Succeed” from Jana Echevarria, Nancy Frey, and Doug Fisher provides a guideline for teachers to help their English learners by using the four practices of “Access, Climate, Expectation, and Language Instruction.” The four practices can be divided into two categories. Access, climate, and expectations focus on educational settings, while language instruction focuses on teaching contents.
School board members across the country want to better serve the students who are English language learners. Because countless English language learner students spend part of their academic day in a regular classroom, the general education teachers need to be trained to understand instructional strategies and techniques to aid in advancing this population of students (Stover, 2015). Consequently, it would also be beneficial for school board members to support the bilingual and English Language Learner Specialist in training all teachers in the district on ways to better serve this population.
in classroom types and styles between these groups. I will also highlight and define the
Finally, in China and Saudi Arabia, the teacher often speaks the entire class period and interaction is at a minimum. In the US, we encourage students to direct their own learning. Teachers often include group activities or projects and encourage partner shares during class time. Students are required to come up with their own ideas and share them to peers or to the class.
The class is a mainstreamed first grade co-teach class of 34 students and two teachers. There are 16 females and 18 males that included 12 active English Language Learners (ELLs) (5 females, 7 males) and five Level 5 (proficient) students. The 12 ELL students represent five languages—Spanish (7), Chinese (1), Chin Burmese (1), and Arabic (2), Brazilian Portuguese (1). Eight of the twelve students tested at Level 1 on the WIDA language proficiency scale.
8b) If I was at my boyfriend’s place, and I said “This meal you made is incredible” in a sincere voice, he could perceive it is (a) cognitive intent: I am praising him for making a good meal, (b) regulatory intent: I am curious to what seasoning he used when he made it, (c) self-presentational intent: I am genuinely grateful that he made the meal.
Advanced Top Notch textbook is an integrated four-skill textbook for adults who want to use English to communicate effectively in daily life.

My placement is in two sixth-grade classes, math and social studies. In my current 6th grade math placement, I am not seeing any differentiation of instruction or assessment based on their language proficiency levels. As I was discussing this assignment with my teacher, it was very difficult for her to give me any of this information. She had to look on the computer to find out who was an ELL and how many ELL students she had, as well as the number of IEP students she had. After realizing she did

Teaching Plan would include 6 evening or day classes consisting of 2-3 hour sessions of education and group discussion. The topics and discussions would be as follows.
In order to promote the utmost success of students, numerous studies have been conducted to determine the ideal organization strategies for grouping within classrooms. There are two major types of grouping, heterogeneous and homogeneous. Heterogeneous grouping can be described as randomly grouping students together. The teacher does not group based on any specific criteria and attempts to involve all types of students within each group. In further detail, there may be one student who overachieves at mathematics and a student that performs below average in mathematics within the same group. Homogeneous grouping is arranging students together based on their academic achievement in particular subjects. For instance, a homogeneous group will contain students who are all around the same reading level. There are two divisions within homogeneous grouping. One is within-class grouping. This means that the students
2. Problem :Students may confuse the meaning and form with simple past tenseSolution: Write two sentences and ask some CQs.e.g:“She went to cinema yesterday” “She’s just gone to cinema?” 1.

For the purpose of this assignment I chose Feruza, an Eritrean high school graduate. She was born and raised in Eritrea and came to live in Jeddah only five years ago. She studied English in an elementary school in Eritrea and continued studying it in an Eritrean International High School. She is not happy at all with what she has learnt during those years. She explained that during her elementary school years her teachers heavily focused on writing while neglecting speaking. When she continued her learning process here in Jeddah, her high school teachers focused only on speaking but not at the level she was expecting.
