Teaching Strategies for ELL Students

This article is a 'must-read' for teachers of ELL students.  It's not just a 'read-only' but videos are embedded that show each strategy in action in 5 areas.  Key to all strategies is integrating language with content.  There are also 3 links to other resources for ELL teachers.
  1. Scaffolding Understanding
  2. Purposeful Grouping
  3. Background Knowledge
  4. Extended Discussion
  5. Valuing Linguistic Differences. 
Reflect on your own experiences with ELLs.  What has worked well for you?  Share your thoughts in Comments.
