Classroom Instruction for ELL’s (K-12)


You have a new student starting in your class, and they don’t speak any English. How will you handle this child’s education? Should they be held to the same standards as the other students?

Jane Hill and Kirsten Miller break down the processes an ELL needs to succeed in your classroom. In Classroom Instruction that Works with ELL’s, they examine ELL-friendly strategies like the QAR Strategy, the Thinking Language Matrix, Feedback, Homework, Cooperative Grouping, Differentiation, Reciprocal Teaching, and Student Talk Time. The authors show how to use each strategy to accommodate learning and create positive learning outcomes for ELL’s.

Educators taking this course will examine, assess, and evaluate ELL strategies through research and apply newly learned methods and techniques to their classrooms. Educators will also investigate special topics and integrate new learning into their teaching environment.

This course is equivalent to 3 semester hours or 4.5 quarter hours. It is a graduate-level course intended for K-12 educators who have completed a bachelor’s degree. It is recommended that you receive board or district approval before registering with TPAI.
