Research Paper- Literacy Instructions for English Language Learners Abstract The increasing number of English language learners has triggered great attention on how to teach academic literacy to English language learners in elementary and middle school classrooms. This article aims at helping teacher blend literacy instructions into their practice in four categories which are respectively vocabulary, writing, reading and collaborative conversation Also, the paper addresses the importance of using responsive literacy instructions for English language learners with learning disabilities. In addition, three key principles of learning are integrated into those instructions in order to help English language learners not only accomplish academic
Within my classroom community, I will model the skills required for language and the students will be active participants in their learning. Students should be given the opportunity to share their opinions and discuss any issues that may arise. As a teacher, I will contribute to the classroom community by providing differentiated instruction and choices for individual differences. I will have students practice the skills they have learned to become more efficient (Tompkins, Bright, & Winsor 2015). I will make sure that my students always feel important, encouraged daily and are supported.
It was also noticed that the learning outcomes does fit well with the learning objectives that was related to the unit activities and the assessments that was given in class. The new knowledge and the skill was clearly stated. Some of the new vocabulary that was introduced to the class by Tr2 were: • Shoulder • Stomach • Foot and feet along with their differences between them. An worksheet exercise was given to the students in order to test if all the students had learnt the spellings as well as to test if all the students was able to do the worksheet exercise on their own without any spelling mistake and also to know how well the students in the class have understood the concept on “parts of the body”.

*add more here* This topic is essential as literacy is integral to our daily lives and as a student, I find it important to question why the works that we study in school are necessary or more effective than the works we may choose to read outside of school. This is important as school is a large part of our lives, we spend a vast amount of time studying. (???) Throughout the course of the education of
Mind mapping software offers both students and teachers a number of benefits relating to presenting and understanding information. As noted by the BBC, mind maps are “highly effective visual aids that enable students to group together different ideas and enable teachers to present ideas visually and assess their students’ conceptual development and understanding.” In addition to seeing information in a way that helps students remember more of what they are being taught, they are also able to increase their critical thinking and memory skills. Long after their days of cramming for finals are over, the skills they sharpen by using mind maps will translate to their professional lives. For students that rely on visual learning methods in order to complete projects and study for exams, mind maps make it easier to communicate thought processes so their teachers and classmates can better understand their
However, writing is the most popular means by which teachers evaluate students’ knowledge; it is not a skill to be learned easily. It is a complex task that needs a number of processes to be performed. Undoubtedly, expository writing is the genre that is needed in education and work. In the middle grades and beyond, writing becomes the backbone and expression of academic growth. As children move from the stage of learning to read to the stage of reading to learn, expository writing helps them to organize and express their thinking.
Instead of only auditory in the past, students will now be immerse in it, and using all of their senses. So now as they will be multi-sense stimulated and more in depth learning will take place. Since we are now talking about having students being immerse in learning, we can talk about having students’ attention while teaching. This is another big factor in the classroom. Classroom control is a factor in many classes around the world, and student’s attention span during class time is very short.
A positive attitude is a valuable asset for learning. With such a feeling, the teacher will want to teach seriously, and the students will learn well too. Learning environment is one of the important factors in a learning process in the classroom. Factors affecting the learning environment are classroom management, classroom condition, peers. The reason I write this essay because the learning environment is very important in the success of learning, especially English, everything related to the place, the learning process implemented is very important, so the factors that influence or support should be able to help educators or students in a learning, especially learn English.
Writing is one the most important skills which needs enough practice. Teaching writing in an effective way is one of the most important life- long skills that teachers impart to their students. Thus, teachers must be sensitive to choose resources and materials that not only lead them in teaching how to write, but that will also be the most effective in helping their students
Thus, the ability in speaking skill is a crucial and important part of second language learning and teaching process. The mastery of speaking skill in the English language is a priority for many second language or foreign language students. Even though periods of focusing on language form and enhance vocabulary are important in English language learning, but developing the students’ ability to really communicate with English in the classroom are the main goal of an English language teaching. At the end of the study, the students should be able to communicate effectively in English for study, work, and leisure outside the classroom. Therefore, it is essential that English teachers pay great attention in teaching speaking to the students.
