Reflection: ELL Students Endangered Species and Animal Classification - Section 3: Explain


I strongly recommend splitting this lesson into two or more sessions, if needed, rather than cutting short the discussion at the end.  It is only through constant exposure to writing, and then reading what they have written, that students develop their language skills.  This is equally true for English Language Learners and advanced students.  The questions can be answered on many levels and provide me with useful information about a students language progress.  An activity such as this can also be used to get a baseline of their written and oral language abilities.
