Reflection: ELL Students Mr. Falker and Mr. Lincoln: Comparing Two Texts - Section 2: Thinking About Two Texts


One of the many reasons I like using the Smartboard is that once we're done with a graphic organizer, I can change all the handwriting to text type (click on it, click on the drop down arrow and choose recognize) and then I can print out the chart for those students who, for some reason, can't keep up in class or for whatever reason process or write more slowly than others. 

Printing the chart out puts those kiddos who might normally struggle on a more level playing field when it comes to the actual writing part.  They don't have to keep all their ideas locked in their own head and they benefit from others' ideas like their classmates do.
