Reflection: ELL Students Trying out a Different Trajectory - Section 1: Re-engage and Explain


Most students enjoy seeing themselves on video and the engagement level when they are watching a replay of an activity is always 100%.  In addition to being enjoyable for them, which is of great value when it's tied to a meaningful educational experience, the video and concurrent opportunity to diagram prior to writing out and explanation provide extra support for second-language learners and struggling writers.
