How do you best support your students who do not speak English? I have four ELL’s in my 6th grade ELA class and they don’t receive push-in or pull-out Bilingual support during my class. Do you pull them for small group to provide instruction separately or do you just try to use google translate to translate your lessons and the work? Any best practices? I’d love some help.

One of my peers puts all instruction in both English and Spanish on his board and handouts. That helps, but only if they actually read Spanish. We use a lot of symbols, graphic organizers, and exemplars.

I would love if I could get even that, unfortunately I don’t see my coworkers doing that.

Are you ESL certified? Because if your not, then they are in the wrong placement.

I don’t translate but use some sources that do, like CommonLit.

I teach some drum lessons on the side and was wondering what a good range for a 30 min lesson would be? For those I’ve taught, the kids are typically in elementary school, so I’m getting them the basics. It’s been fun seeing some of them perform in talent shows even within the year! Curious what everyone thinks the market range is for good (not professional) drum lessons are?

How do you come up with your labs to make sure they are aligned with the unit.? I feel like I am doing well on EOC scores but I feel like my class is a drag because we just drill concepts and the labs are not making the connections I’d like between the lesson and the activity. It becomes them just following my instruction and not much scientific processing or troubleshooting to come up with the conclusion. I want to make scientist not just students that pass the EOC.

What are some general warm-up prompts that can be applied to different texts & get students' wheels turning before a lesson or discussion?
