How do you teach beginning ELLs to write an essay?
Teaching writing to beginning ELLs is very difficult. Syntax is a very difficult concept. I find that we do not teach writing, syntax, or grammar as part of the ESOL curriculum. When I do teach it, I feel like I have to hide what I am teaching because the concept of grammar and syntax has such a horrible rap that I feel like I am teaching "How to crack a safe."
