Reflection: ELL Students Courageous People: What We Do Without Them? - Section 3: Writing The Question


I really enjoyed walking around and seeing my students get immersed in their reading. They were very curious about the person they were reading about. I was very impressed by the type of questions they were asking. The questions were thoughtful and took into account the information they were reading. I think it helped that I modeled how to ask good questions ahead of time. I like to see my students take initiative in their own learning. I like giving them the space (the Concept/Question Board) to make their learning public. When students are making decisions about who or what they are reading their enthusiasm for learning increases.

I have my students add drawings to their questions because as English Language Learners they benefit from visuals. This aids their comprehension and makes it fun. And, having them place the question on the board helps them to take ownership of their learning and helps them to see the role of the Concept/Question board in the learning that happens in our classroom.
