4 ESL TEACHERS AND C ONTENT -A REA T EACHERS ESL teachers have had considerable training in such areas as second language acquisition, linguistics, language pedagogy and methodology, culture, scaffolding techniques, and language and literacy development. In contrast, most content-area teachers have not received enough training in these subjects. As a result, content teachers need guidance from ESL teachers to effectively teach their ELLs, who are at varying levels of English language proficiency. ESL TeachersContent Area Teachers

6 COMPLIMENTARY TEACHING Occurs when one co-teacher does something to enhance the instruction provided by the other co-teacher. One teacher takes primary responsibility for designing the lesson. However, both teachers share in the delivery of the information sometimes with a varied delivery method.

8 A S TRONG E MPHASIS ON A CADEMIC V OCABULARY ESL teachers bring a deep, often untapped level of expertise in teaching academic language that can be leveraged across their schools and districts. VOCABULARY.pdf VOCABULARY.pdf Handbook of Academic Vocabulary ESL teachers can consult with content teachers by helping them analyze the academic language demands of their content areas and offering them advice for designing lessons that teach academic language and rigorous content simultaneously (Ex. The SIOP Model)

9 C OMMUNITY R ESOURCES ESL teachers tend to be more aware of community resources for ELLs, such as multicultural counseling services. ESL teachers are often members of professional learning communities within the ESL field which tend to provide additional support to CCSS.

10 A DVOCATES FOR S TUDENT N EEDS ESL teachers tend to be highly adept at advocating for their ELLs in multiple ways, even if they do not always see themselves as advocates. in-the-common-core-advocating-for-ells/ in-the-ccss-advocacy-action-items-part-2/ If school administrators recognize ESL teachers as language development experts and set an expectation that ELLs are “Everybody’s Kids,” they have the opportunity to create a school culture in which the entire staff shares responsibility for ELL success with the CCSS.

11 ESL TEACHERS AS S CHOOL L EADERS ESL teachers practice developing (and believing in) their own leadership voices to ensure that they are heard and consulted on decisions that affect them and their students. ESL teachers may seek leadership training so that they can be better prepared to advocate for their place at the table and their students in policy decisions.

12 SUPPORTIVE TEACHING Occurs when one teacher is assigned primary responsibilities for designing and delivering a lesson, and the other member(s) of the team does something that complements, supplements, or enhances the lesson.

13 TEACH AND WRITE Teach and Write One teacher teaches the lesson while the other records the important points on an overhead or chalkboard. ELLs benefit from this because information is being presented to them through different modalities.

14 TEAM TEACHING Occurs when two or more people do what the traditional teacher used to do. They share responsibility for planning, teaching, and assessing progress of students in the class(es) that they teach together.

15 STATION TEACHING Station Teaching Students rotate through predetermined stations or activities. Each teacher works with all the students as they come through the station. ndex.shtm ndex.shtm Center Activities

16 PARALLEL TEACHING Occurs when co-teachers instruct different groups of students at the same time in the classroom.
