2 A teaching Strategy that works Efficiently with EL population Created by: Catherine Wu

3 Introduction Description of Strategy: Using images to generate humorous language play is vital to making language development meaningful for Intermediate Level ELLs. Students will practice writing skills in a fun and creative manner. Filling in cartoon bubbles is an excellent exercise. This activity is ideal for a learning center activity. Introduction:

4 Comprehensible input: STUDENTS PRE-READ THE STORY OF MULAN, THEN DISCUSS THE WORDS AND SENTENCES THAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND. TEACHER PROVIDES MEANING AND EXPLANATION. HAVE STUDENTS SUPPLY THEIR OWN WORDS FOR THE PICTURES/Bubbles IS AN EASY AND MEANINGFUL WAY TO USE WRITTEN LANGUAGE. PRIOR TO WRITING IN THE BUBBLES, ASK STUDENTS TO WRITE AND EDIT THEIR WORDS ON A SEPARATE SHEET OF PAPER. THIS ALSO GIVES THE WRITER AN INDICATION OF THE SPACE AND THE SIZE OF THE LETTERS TO USE. This IS AN OPEN-ENDED LESSON, EACH STUDENT MAKES HIS/HER OWN WRITING, AND THEN WRITE IT IN THE TEMPLATE. Remember : This is used strictly for educational purpose.

5 Description of Language Use: 1)Key words of the strategy: comic book, comic strip, cartoon, speech bubble, thought bubble, edit, template. 2)Discuss the words and sentences that are new to them from the (Mulan) story after the reading. Words: village, scroll, warrior, retired general, disguise, military, emperor, incredible courage, frail, regret, rouge, transformed, accomplish, inspire.
