Instructional Focus-Academic Discourse ELL Students

Routines Continued Week 2....

1. Call on students using random opportunities, ensuring that the students are held accountable by listening.

2. Limit hand raising- this is predictable and more than often, an ineffective way to illicit information or check for understanding.

3. Students must respond in complete sentences at all times. Providing sentence frames visually or verbally will ensure that students have the structures in place to meet your expectations.

4. When speaking in class, encourage your academic discourse by using sentence frames as referred to in previous bulletins. Keeps posters up for reference if needed. Students engaging in conversations need the sentence frames for reference, respectfully agreeing, disagreeing and citing evidence from text. You have been given the resources, please put them to use.
