Notes from the Tch Laureates

At many schools across the country, the population is evolving. An increasing number of students join our classes whose first language is something other than English. When we consider how best to meet the educational needs of these students, there are many things to consider, and there is no simple one-size-fits-all formula. As teachers, we struggle with the decision of how best to both challenge and meet the needs of all of our students. This week, to help us best respond to our English language learners, Teaching Channel is launching 12 new videos that focus on the use of content-based conversations to help build language skills.
