Reflection: ELL Students Jack Pretslusky - Section 3: Partner Work


In the video, you'll notice that I talk about the different proficiency levels that different students demonstrate. While I have high expectations for all students, I know that some need more support in certain areas than others. For example, I make sure I am on the look out for ways I can support my ELL students with the more technical aspects of writing while also expecting them to produce the content proficiently. This is how I differentiate to meet my students needs. 

Also, in the video, I mention that music and singing are not relevant, but, after some thought, I have decided that music and singing can connect to being a poet. I will have to go back and revise my initial analysis. Sometimes my analysis right after instruction is a little foggy, and I don't always see things as clearly as I do when I step back and analyze work at a later date. It's sometimes important to remember to give yourself time to breathe and reflect as a busy teacher!
