I will help my students to find other resources to support their learning process. For example, I can suggest students to search about an idea, fact, or any information from books or the internet. This will help them in enhancing their knowledge and will also prevent them from relying on the teacher support only. In addition to that, I will help them to read and write more and encourage them to practice English outside the classroom. I will also provide students the tools that will assist them in learning and will also build their interest of learning in the classroom and incorporate a variety of assessments that I gained from the assessment ... ... middle of paper ... ...ssible way.
In conclusión, Understanding history and culture in English and being able to communicate critically in both mother tongue and second language should be to the advantage of the each student and a step forward to a future career. The ideas presented in this writing should guide CLIL teachers in the preparation of their lessons and possibly to show them how to adapt new sources of authentic materials and native language websites. Additionally, working towards motivation needs to be conceived as a process with others through which all actors involved contribute to and benefit from. Finally, the last aim of the CLIL Approach points out developing multilingual interests and attitudes which will aid learners in their labour and professional future.
Traditional instructional methods present new concepts linguistically to students; in other words, by having them read and/or listen to the information they are expected to learn. In the student’s long-term memory, that information would be formed in a fashion similar to a sentence. On the other hand, Non-linguistic r... ... middle of paper ... ... in English, it is difficult to assess what they already know, what they understand, and what they have learned. By using non-linguistic representations to bridge the communication gap, English Language Learner instructors can offer a more accessible learning opportunity to all of their students, and better assess their specific content knowledge at every level of their development. References Hill, J., & Miller, K. (2013).
There are also methods that are involved in teaching English as a second language that can be creative for the teacher, yet beneficial to the student. First building a strong foundation that is essential to English learners will promote the language acquisition process. To do this teacher’s should always start with preparation.

They feel that students should select material that has meaning to them and that they will enjoy. Teachers who use the top down model encourage their students to engage in activities where they are able to speak, write and read to develop the skills they need in order to read. This method implies that a teacher believes the students will be able to read the words on the page by using context clues to help figure out words he or she may not be familiar with.
This approach also makes learning exciting by allowing students an opportunity to connect ideas based on their background knowledge. As teachers we must continue to implement strategies for the purpose of promoting students’ overall comprehension skills. I thought this article was very informational and I took away some very useful teaching tools that will allow me to help my students become better readers understanding what they are reading. In doing this I will be able to teach the different text structures to the students who are at a disadvantage and help them to be able to comprehend by using text structures in expository texts. I also thought it was nice how the article gave the five text structures and three guides as a guide to use with students.
Students should be allowed to have more space to practice the language and they should be encouraged, monitored and corrected accordingly. Students also should be exposed to pronunciation practice that helps students to become more fluent. Before students practice the language, arranging groups and seating should be considered. Speaking lessons require group and pair workings and sometimes it can be really hard to persuade students to work with different partners. They want to work with their best friends and instead of practising the target language, they chat with their friends.

A few simple Classroom Management (See the "Classroom Management" Teaching Tip) strategies can also greatly increase the potential for student learning. Works Cited Cross, K. Patricia.

That is the reason why wherever talking or writing is involved, English is important. It can show us what a student knows and what they do not know about a particular subject. It might make a student look clumsy if a student uses the wrong words or grammar. There is nothing more humiliating then using an incorrect grammar while talking in front of all your classmates. Studying more words alongside the meaning will allow the student to feel happier using the words correctly in talking and when writing.
Although there are many different techniques to education, I feel that the philosophy of progressivism and essentialism best fits my style and belief of teaching. These teaching philosophies focus around student needs, democracy, and the basics of education. I feel that the materials presented in class should be thought provoking enough where students can exercise their critical thinking skills. Working in groups and interacting with other students should be encouraged because this way, a student can learn how to collaborate with one another but also learn how to accept different viewpoints. When teaching English, it is important for students to have conversational experiences with one another because many times students would focus only on grammar and can potentially be problematic.
