Group Activity: 1) At your table, go around in a round robin and share one practice (with your ELL/SE students) that has brought about student academic progress and achievement. Ensure that you give details such as time allotted, grade level, location, times of the day/week, participants, staff involved, outcome (how you track it / what’s next).
