Activity: Newcomer or Long Term ELL? 5 Strategies

In this activity, you will visit the QR codes posted around the room, access the QR code with your phone, and learn about a strategy.

With your graphic organizer, take notes on whether the strategy would work best for a newcomer or a long term ELL. Answer: How could the strategy be modified if it doesn't work for a newcomer? How could it be modified for a long term ELL?

Participants will:

  • Walk around the room and visit the QR Codes posters.
  • Use a device (iPad/iPhone, etc.) to read or listen to the instructions for each strategy.
  • Take notes on the graphic organizer.
  • Debrief: Teachers will discuss ways the strategy can be used with a newcomer or a long term ELL.
  • Share observations whole group.
  • Explore how strategies would work in an exemplar lesson.

Closing: 1, 2, 3, Tableau! Teachers choose one of the strategies they would like to incorporate into lessons and demonstrate it using tableau.
