I think the teacher carried out some really interesting practices a sfar as attempting to engage ELL in this setting. Starting them out with a simple question, speaking slow, using her hands, and elaborating in Spanish afterwards all seemed to be practices which helped the students. It was interesting to hear some of their responses as far as where they wanted to go and what they planned to do. The fact that many of the students vocalized wanting to help others or even just planning to travel and then work spoke volumes about their culture and seemed, in my opinion, to be a large difference between these student populations and students who have grown up in the American culture. I wonder what other ways we can normalize speaking English for these students.

Allowing students to respond to parts of the sentence with a language they are comfortable with is such a powerful tool. I admire that the teach uses their native language a strength for their work rather than a weakness.

The sentence starters on the board really enabled students to get a head start in sharing their responses and share their responses with the entire class and with partners with more confidence.

Hi! I think the sentence starters is such a good activity because students can use this in the future to model their sentences. The teacher also encouraged discussion and informed students on how to be successful such as eye contact and body langue. She is teaching students how to have a meaningful conversation in English.

The way the teacher begins the lesson with a simple question of asking the students where they'd like to travel is a great way to begin the lesson, and then adding a few more layers to the question to really increase their level of thinking. At the same time, I like that the lesson more so played out like a conversation amongst a group of people which helped the students be very engaged in the lesson. At the same time, I like that the teacher will state the objectives to her students in English, but hen translate it into Spanish for them to gain a better understanding to see what the teacher is looking for in the lesson. I even appreciate, that the teacher provides a self reflection paper for each students to view how they performed throughout the lesson to see iwhere they have progressed, and to see where exactly they need to improve. It really helps that she breaks down each question from the reflection to the students in order for them to fully grasp their thoughts on where they stand personally in the class.
