A. Lincoln Memorial High School
Another method Lincoln Memorial High School uses Total Physical Response. Total Physical Response is activities greatly multiply the language input and output that can be handled by beginning English language learners.TPR activities elicit whole-body responses when new words or phrases are introduced.
Lincoln also implements a type of co-teaching called Two Groups, one teacher teaches content and the other re-teaches. In this case our subject area teaches content and our ELL teacher will reteach and help the ELL students in their content area classes.
Demographic of the School
Lincoln Memorial High School uses the English Only approach to education. Our school has five highly qualified ELL teachers employed to support all of our ELL students in all five grades.
Our non-ELL teachers have all taken seminars and classes on which methods to use during their teaching to help support ELL students so they will have support during all of their classes throughout the day.
One of the methods we chose to use in the school plan in heterogeneous grouping over homogenous grouping. Research from the National Education Policy Center shows that heterogeneous grouping helps destigmatize differentiated ability groups, maintains higher standards for classes from teachers, and that students are offered an equalized curriculum which prevents them from being given inappropriate curriculum.
