All English language learners need to learn the language of instruction in English language schools at the same time as they are working towards meeting the curriculum expectations. Young children learn the system of a new language more effectively than older learners. They may acquire a local accent quickly, whereas their older siblings may always have an accent influenced by the system of their home language. But young children may well take five or more years to catch up to their age peers in vocabulary acquisition and the accurate use of grammar in both spoken and written English. This is because they also need to develop fundamental concepts and literacy skills that they may not have developed in their home language.
With the help of relatives, we learned English and from then on we felt like the world was at our feet. The feeling of being able to completely understanding what someone is saying and having the ability to respond properly became my new favorite thing. Once we learned English many doors opened up for my brother and I. We were moved from ESL classes to regular classes so that we could further our knowledge. The first two years of school in the U.S. for me were spent trying to learn English, while my classmates were working on learning to write properly.

Using the academic honor code it would eliminate plagiarism in their class or school. “Some may think that copying others easier and it's more common (Kahn)”. “The findings regarding different instructors’ approaches toward academic dishonesty indicate that an intolerant policy will keep dishonest students away, but at a price—it will also detract many honest students (Elliott and Rakovski
Standardized tests can be very helpful when it comes to positive student achievement, equal content and comparison, and helps prepare you for college. Research suggests that standardized tests can have positive effects on student achievement. 93% of studies on student testing found a positive outcome on student achievement, according to an analysis completed in 2011 by Richard P. Phelps. Therefore, standardized tests can have an advantage to students as well as teachers. Standardized tests do make students work harder, because they know that if they don’t pass the exam, they won’t pass the class.
This method proved to make the students proficient in both languages. They also described the differences between one-way and two-way bilingual education; one-way education is when students who speak one language receive education in two different languages, and two-way education is when there are students who speak different languages, who learn the other language through their peers. The United States showed favorability towards two-way education. This was because they had such a diverse student population, and students showed better retention when taught this way. The piece also described the careful planning that teachers must go through in order to make sure that the students will understand concepts in both languages.

Another positive behavior consequence is they could get a lunch date with the teacher.

The master plan was created to help English learners in LAUSD to acquire the English language and at the same time succeed academically.

When they are all dressed alike, their all-for-one-and-one-for-all comradery is boosted therefore it builds a positive environment for them. Some people may claim that students can have more independence and can show off their originality and creativity by not wearing the traditional ‘boring’ school uniforms, but not wearing school uniforms not only triggers disturbance, it might also cause students to wear scantily, which is inelegant and not pleasing at all. This educate children the lesson of respect and prioritizing, setting studies over fashion, since their central focus should be on studying now. Therefore, school uniforms teach students respect and the importance to prioritize. According to Spencer (2013) “Wearing a uniform is a badge of pride, creates an identity for a school and is an important part of being a school student.” People might articulate that school uniforms are tedious and unattractive, but only school uniforms, can create a sense of exceptionality.
After realizing that I did not want to control the behaviors of the students I started to work to make each student feel comfortable and safe. I worked to put myself in each students shoes and consider what would make me comfortable in their situation. I found that by respecting each student as an equal that not only would they respect me but also that they worked better with each other when they were comfortable. It has been easy for me to notice how vulnerable the self esteem of many high school students is and I work hard to help increase the self-confidence of every
One reason why I think that this career would be good for me is because I like helping kids. I’ve always loved being able to interact and help children. Plus, if I get into a foreign language class like my goal, then I’ll be able to talk to kids that don’t speak English. All I’ll have to do to be able to do that, would be turning everything in in ELA, do well on projects, and make sure that I get better grades so Ms. Miller can refer me for a Spanish
