Reflection: ELL Students Now You See Me, Now You Don't - Section 3: Explore


This is a great application activity, because so many of my student are English Language Learners and it takes a great deal of hands on experience and using visuals to help them develop a conceptual understanding. So, the images and video about how turtles use their external body features to protect themselves is just one way I try to help them learn the information. But, I also have to modify work:modified t-chart by writing with a highlighter and letting my students trace it. The proficient student work show that my student is making accurate observations.
