Reflection: ELL Students Sticking Together with Toothpaste Words - Section 4: Toothpaste Words


When we are discussing some of the groups become stuck with what else to write. Sometimes the example is not enough for students. I try to start and gauge a discussion by the responses I initially receive. When only a few are actively engaged, I know its time revisit the example and discussion question. However, it did not seem to work the way I presented the question the first time. The tricky part comes when having to give another example, but in different way. The new example might be enough and another trick I try is acting like the student and carrying out the desired response for them to see.
