Reflection: ELL Students Exploring Oil - Section 2: Explore


I promote understanding of the process of transporting oil with a modification for the ELL students as well as the students with learning disabilities. Instead of asking the students to try and develop the system, I print the image and cut up the pictures.  I ask them to predict the steps of transporting oil by using/ordering the pictures.  This strategy allows these students the opportunity to use prepared visual images to support their learning.
