The teacher opened the class by reading aloud to the ESL students, and the students were then given an opportunity to read aloud to each other within discussion groups. The students were assigned roles within the group: discussion facilitator, summarizer, word searcher, and illustrator. This allowed the students to synthesize information in various ways and learn the new information within context. The teacher was very involved with the whole class and guided students through their learning, and the students were able to guide each other. The teacher provided constructive and positive feedback for each of the groups at the end of the class. It was very pleasing to see the students smiling and interacting with each other, and they also applauded at the end of the lesson. This was fantastic instruction.

  This class was an excellent example of a teacher being a facilitator during the learning process. The class was a group of ESL learners with differing reading levels in which using heterogeneous grouping is optimal for learning. After reading a chapter of a book the groups were asked to answer higher order thinking questions and discuss them. The class activities were well organized and the teacher kept a visual of the specific roles for the students to refer to if needed. Rotating the students so that each can have practice with the roles such as summarizer, word searcher, illustrator and discussion director was great practice for the students. Their teacher was also very positive when giving constructive criticism for improving their work.

It was an Amazing video, the teacher had the lead and all the students did their own role.  Everyone was ingaged and prticipated through out the entire class period. All the students shared something about the assignment and read to. The teacher took notes and encouraged the students with his observations. It was positive all around.

Great 👍 I enjoyed seeing how many different ways the students where engaged on many levels mentally.  Nice active environment that made sure the students stayed focused. Involved interactions between each other was neat to mesh the classroom together with beautiful harmony.
