Reflection: ELL Students Graphing Inequalities (Vertical and Horizontal Boundaries) - Section 3: Generalization


The first time I ended a lesson asking students for written work, I really wasn't thinking about the possible language difficulties of some students in the class. I didn't realize that students may have serious difficulties writing, and some may actually not write anything at all if they are left to do the task on their own. 

A good way of dealing with this without eliminating the closure entirely, is to pair up students with language difficulties with others that don't have english problems. I would ask that they work together and submit one work with both their names on it. I would make sure that ELLs actually participate in the elaboration of the paragraphs by contributing their ideas, and the other student do the writing.

Graphing Inequalities (Vertical and Horizontal Boundaries)

Unit 3: Relationships between Quantities/Reasoning with Equations
Lesson 14 of 15

Objective: SWBAT graph inequalities with vertical and horizontal boundaries.

Big Idea: This lesson is actually a continuation of the Two Variable Inequality lesson. Again, the topic of inequalities is a great one for modeling with real world problems.
