Teaching Content to ELL Students

My Class
Content-Enriched ESL Instruction
When teaching CBI--Content Based Instruction--the instructor is responsible for teaching English, as well as content.

"CBI materials must be comprehensible for students; in other words, students should be able to understand the essence of what is being said or presented to them, but they may not know all of the vocabulary words or grammatical structures included in the input."
-- Module 2 Interactive Lecture
Sheltered Content Instruction
SIOP Method: The Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) makes content material comprehensible to English Language Learners.
Different Meanings
For my class...
For my class I am more likely to use the sheltered instructional method because...
As a district in New Mexico, laden with native Spanish speakers, RRPS is familiar with ESL instruction and ELL students.
3rd Grade
I will be teaching a general education class with one registered ELL student, though many students are testing low in ready, fluency, and comprehension.
Since I only have one ELL student, I will need to utilize methods of instruction that will benefit all of my 23 students and still definitively work for my ELL student.
Enriching Classrooms
By using a content-enriched language model in a classroom, it allows the teacher to use the content to teach the language, though absorbing content is not the goal of the class.
The goals for CEESL Instruction is for students to be able to apply the language in a context that will help them reach their goals.
The content-enriched model works well in a setting that teaches English for a Specific Purpose. This allows teachers to use the content specifically for the purpose students are needing to learn the language for.
The goal of sheltered content instruction is to master content, not necessarily language skills

Model an Activity
Using different instructional strategies or methods to reach different students.
EAP stands for English for Academic Purpose. ELL students in an EAP class will use their language skills, both old and new, to develop understanding for content.
This is a great worksheet for comparing and contrasting, which students learn to do in third grade. It also will teach students new vocabulary words.
I only have one ELL student so to benefit the class I will help him with English by differentiating his instruction slightly to help him keep up.
If I did have more than one ELL student I would still be in an environment that would encourage me to teach EAP.
Each student can benefit from a sheltered method. It does not focus heavily on language learning but instead uses the content to teach the language.
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
This activity is great because
it puts students together to
work in different groups and
each student will be at a different language level from each other, allowing them to learn from one another.
I love this activity because it allows students to connect with the word by draw it and then describing what it means. This is a good follow up activity for students who were confronted with a word they didn't understand.
I love this example because it is something that each third grader has to learn but ELL students can particularly struggle with. When words are spelled the same but mean different things it can be frustrating and discouraging for students who are lacking understanding.
When the entire class works on something that an ELL student may need extra help in it can help keep the student motivated to learn by not singling him or her out to do extra work.
