Week 2 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
Everyone has a mode in which they learn best. For some is it reading or watching, for others it is listening to a lecture or a book on tape, while others need to complete a task for comprehension. The same holds true for students who are English language learners. It is important to know how your students learn best. Here are some examples for teaching to various learning styles with suggestions for differentiation.
Imagine that you have been working with the general educator to teach your 9th grade ELL students how to give clear verbal directions to a peer in order to complete a task. After the second full day of practicing directions with words like “left/right,” “near/far,” “next to/between,” and “in front/behind,” you need to formatively assess your student’s progress. Describe, in general terms, what kind of formative assessment will you use while keeping in mind the various learning needs of your students, to determine oral language growth? Here is a great slide sharing document to get your creative juices flowing:
Justify your assessment with support from at least one additional source cited in APA format using the in-text citation style and at the end of your post as a full reference. Two articles to get you started on your search include:
Guided Response: Respond to at least two peer postings by reading the description of their formative assessments and then reviewing the resources cited in the post. Now respond as if you are in the role of the general educator; how will you support the findings and recommendations of the formative assessment in your classroom when the ELL students are present? Do you feel that you can realistically implement the formative assessment in your class- why or why not? How will you document their progress to share with the ELL teacher specialist?
Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
