Diversity In ELL

587 Words3 Pages
Children come to school with a particular mind set each according to their culture. For example, a Hispanic child might find very common to eat tacos, beans and rice very often. On the other hand, a European student might not find constantly eating Mexican food very common. Also, in a traditional Hispanic household it might not be too normal to eat out more than once a week or in special occasions. With this in mind, it is important to remember that students need to keep learning their home language and talking about it in order to relate and identify similarities and differences with other languages. There are many good books to introduce Diversity to ELL student so that they know that they are not weird but only different and we all are.
