Question Detail

Hi all! I am a brand new (just graduated in December) ESL teacher. I am working with ELL's who range in age from 3 yrs to 5th grade. I did graduate with my teaching certification along with my ESL certification, however, while going through my classes never received instruction on how to teach ESL in a pull-out program. I am looking for any tips on instruction, lesson planning, etc. I apologize if my question seems very broad.

        To support lesson planning its important to consider your students language proficiency levels and overall scores. Your pull-out group may vary in levels and it is important to differentiate. It is also important to provide access to on-grade level content at one point or the another during your instructional time to develop academic language and grade level skills.

          Agreed working with classroom teachers to support academic language/ instruction is vital.
