The start of the school year typically brings an influx of new students into my classroom. Some come from neighboring districts or have returned home, but most are new to the area. While fitting in as a teenager can be difficult, English Language Learners have additional hurdles to overcome. Not only are they trying to make new friends, but they may also be struggling to hit their stride within unfamiliar classroom walls. How can we help them succeed? While a warm smile and thoughtful check-ins are always helpful, we need to ensure that we’re modifying our materials to meet their educational needs as well.

As a science teacher, two of my of my favorite ELL videos are Supporting ELLs through Project Based Learning and Making a Claim About Variation: Designated ELD. These video resources, and many others, can be found within Teaching Channel’s ELL Deep Dive. This expertly curated collection of resources is the perfect place to locate high quality videos, thoughtful blog posts, and additional tools that will assist you in finding ways to help all students thrive within your learning environment.

Hoping that your school year is off to a wonderful start.
