The ELL population is rapidly growing, and it is important that teachers are equipped and ready to teach and assess these ELLs. Assessing ELLs is important because the assessments tell teachers how to make instructional decisions, and how much the child knows and can do (Lenski. 2006, P. 25). It is important for teachers to make sure that the ELL students are continually developing English competence and acquiring content knowledge. Because of the No Child Left Behind act, there are assessment mandates that all teacher must follow, like the Title 1 that requires ELLs attending public schools to be assessed in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, and they must also be included in statewide standardized testing.
Dual language immersion programs should be implemented into every elementary school curriculum because children in these programs acquire a second language, which helps them develop useful skills, become more aware of cultures around the world, and, contrary to the opposition’s claim, it does help students learn better in school. Dual language immersion programs are very beneficial for elementary school students because learning a second language helps young children develop a greater capacity to listen. Listening is a skill that is needed throughout life. When students have a greater capacity to
For teachers to teach reading effectively their lessons should include vocabulary, decoding skills, fluency and comprehension strategies. Using these techniques and strategies taught in class students can make connections to build up their reading comprehension. As we discussed with our first article, students who have better automaticity obtain more cognitive abilities that they can put forth to work with reading comprehension. Therefore, reading fluency, the use of accuracy and automaticity, connects to student’s reading comprehension. A student’s reading success depends of their reading
In second language learning, using visual aids is a necessity teaching strategy in both English as Second Language (ESL) classroom and English as Foreign Language (EFL) classroom (Allen, Kate & Marquez, 2011). They believed that using visual aids in the process of teaching a foreign language can strengthen what learners have learned and increase their interest. In their article, they proposed the positive impact of using visuals and they concluded that teachers should become aware of the strategies in which they can use visual aids and use them purposefully in the classroom to enhance students’ learning. Visual aids can be defined as using objects, drawings, charts, photographs, videos, multimedia presentation, etc. in the classroom.
Arguments in favor of bilingual education. Children who have the opportunity to be taught a second language language at school show that they have an important number of cognitive advantages compared to the monolingual children (Denham & Lobeck, 2013, p.49). It also provides them a background knowledge through the first language, and a more important development of literacy in their native language. Indeed, all languages have a connection, as the theory of universal grammar demonstrate, thus children will learn a second language the same way as they learn their native language, consequently the technical aspect of learning a language will be easier for those who already know a second language. Moreover, learning a second language at school also means learning a new culture, new
Foreign languages should be taught in elementary schools because learning a language provides cognitive benefits, is easy for children in particular, and is useful in the work force. Learning a foreign language exercises the brain and improves learning ability. According to Mary Lynn Redmond of Wake Forest University, students enrolled in a foreign language class tend to score higher on standardized tests, such as the SAT (“Foreign Language Important in Elementary School”). “Learning languages helps increase listening ability, memory, creativity and critical thinking,” she says. These skills are vital to academic success.
I have learned so much through research, my peers, my class, and through my own personal experience how grammar can be best taught in the classroom. Every student needs to be given a positive learning experience on grammar. Grammar will carry into every aspect of their lives. It is important to me as a teacher to build my students foundation to have a good knowledge of grammar. I hope that I can be the teacher that my students look back on and remember how fun it was to learn in my classroom.
Another quote is " Assessment has several important purposes, including informing how teachers plan learning experiences, identifying areas of learning and development where children may need support or extension, to make valued learning visible, and integrating learning with curriculum and program provision" (Mclachlan). The author is making clear with assessments it is helping everyone because there is a major meaning to having them. It shows the way teachers communicate planned learning experiences to prepare for test. To represent how the teacher prepares the students to learn the components that are going to be on the test. Like stated before, it gives the teacher to see where the students ' strong points are or where their weaknesses are and need to work on that specific topic.
The sociocultural foundation of development is important because the reader and writer considers their daily social and cultural experience's, values and knowledge to contribute to their literacy skills in reading and writing. Researchers believe that learners draw attention to oral language, the aspects of language in serving daily needs, social phenomenon in language literacy, preschool experiences and home engagement language as related to accomplishments in school. The best practices in word recognition, and language comprehension, strategic knowledge, and reading-writing connections includes phonics awareness instruction, sight words, Alphabet learning instruction and sound letter instruction. According to Piasta , published programs of instruction in Alphabet learning has become one of the most primary objects for early literacy because it promotes familiar letters forms, sounds and names. Alphabet knowledge instruction correlates to strategic knowledge and the learners' ability to apply their phonological awareness.
