Integrating a child's home language can be very tricky, due to having to integrate other children's languages as well to try and keep things even. While considering some advantages, it would allow the students to learn about different cultures, as well as learn a new skill that they can pick up themselves later on. A few disadvantages would be accidentally not being able to meet every child's individual language, causing more harm. How I would integrate language into my classroom is by allowing my students to base their projects on their culture and text in their art. I would also have a culture project to allow students to showcase their culture and their art through it at the end of the year.

I believe that the benefits of attempting to integrate the child’s home language into the classroom helps the child to better understand what is being taught as well as making the child feel accepted. Some of the disadvantages are that the student becomes too dependent on his home language instead of assimilation into the language of the classroom.   When I am trying to determine student success, which in turn is my success, I do look at formal and informal assessments.  I look at student engagement, assignment completion, and school attendance.  In my classroom, I use written, spoken, and visual expression to reinforce concepts.  Hopefully, this helps students to improve their language skills.

benefits of integrating students hone language will allow then to feel confortable and respected within their cultural background. this will allow the student to let down walls and trust their teachers as well as allow their piers to be respectful and be inclusive to students with different language barriers. some disadvantages would be that this aproach would have an opposite effect on the child and they could possibly fall behind if learning material and tests are not given in their stronger language. data to measure growth would be student learning data, Demographic Data school process data, and percentual data. ways to use classroom environemnt to aid languag leanring was to aid oral speaking and practcing before reading and writing. kinesthetic support is also good to include into a classroom environment for language learners across content areas.
