I love the way that Ms. Sackman explained how to write an essay to her English Language learners. Using an index card to describe the introduction, first body paragraph, second body paragraph, third body paragraph, and conclusion is a great idea. She focuses on ensuring everyone understands, which shows that her students are important to her. Encouraging students to speak English in a polite manner makes students more self-confident. Asking students what they learned at the end of the lesson students can reinforce the material.

She is a great teacher and had a multitude of ways to teach an essay. The students seemed to be engage and responsive. She uses tools that student can manipulate.
