ELL 240 Week 5 Final Paper

Short description

To make curriculum accessible to English language learners (ELLs), teachers must be able to integrate strategies to help them develop social and academic language skills in English and provide support by using comprehensible input and scaffolding. Accommodations should be based on current theories and research in language and literacy development, and they should address the interrelationship between culture and language.
For this assignment, you will read the "Classroom Scenario" from Pathways to teaching series: Practical strategies for teaching english language learners. In a five- to eight-page paper, complete the following: PART 1: Analysis Analyze the scenario by addressing the following: •   Identify the strategies used in the scenario to help ELLs develop social and academic language skills in English.
Explain if these strategies are effective. Why or why not?
 •   Explain how instructional input and scaffolding are used to support ELLs.
 •   Discuss current theories and research in ELL development. Give specific examples of how the teacher used theory
and research to support his practice.
Provide specific examples to support your points. Make sure to discuss the teacher’s or students’ actions in the scenario, and align them to specific concepts learned during the course. Whenever appropriate, use course vocabulary to demonstrate your knowledge of how it is applied and activated in the field.
PART 2: Action Plan
Discuss next steps the teacher should take to best facilitate effective language development for the ELLs in his classroom. Be sure to properly cite sources of information that support your suggestions. Your action plan must include the following components: ◦   Identify and describe at least one, but no more than two, standards. You may either use Common Core Standards or state ELD standards.
 ◦   Describe three to four standards-based interventions/activities based on student data as described in the scenario. Explain why you’re suggesting the intervention/activity.
 ◦   For each intervention/activity, explain how you used fundamental theories of ELL instruction to inform your thinking.
