Reflection: ELL Students Group Discussion: Hear With the Ear - Section 2: Independent Practice


The talking chips were effective in helping my English language learners begin sentences in various ways. They invited them to ask questions they normally would not have asked because they did not have the vocabulary or sentence structure. The also chips provided the support needed to move beyond simple sentences and pat responses.
