2. Are the teachers prepared to teach English language learners in schools? Research Question 1 Are teaching exhausting every source to help English language learners? The teachers’ attitudes towards the English Language learners’ learning vary and this is a potential factor that can severely impede full development of the students. Figure 1 shows the preferred model for teaching English language learners in the classrooms.
Wong (2005) defines classroom management as “all of the things that a teacher does to organize students, space, time and materials so that student learning can take place” (p. 84). This classroom management plan was created to address the needs of a first grade, general education, inclusion class. The majority of the students have attended kindergarten at the same school, so they are familiar with the school grounds and know their fellow classmates. Classrooms today are the most diverse they have ever been; population changes have affected the dominance of social and cultural backgrounds; while inclusion has moved to mainstream students with more diverse needs and abilities. Emmer, Stough, Sugai and Horner (as cited in Capizzi, 2009) state, that these changes demand “well-managed classrooms to promote positive behavior and optimize learning and achievement” (p. 2).
Literacy is an on-going skill that teachers and students alike should commonly study and practice in all grades. Problems faced by teachers, especially teachers in higher grades, are not having the skills to be effective teachers of literacy. To effectively teach literacy across content areas, a teacher would need skills such as knowledge of the reading process and the ability to cultivate the knowledge gained in order to make informed decisions within their classrooms (Clary, Oglan, Styslinger,
Several factors that can cause the low level of English language proficiency among secondary school students are the usage of mother tongue language, students’ motivation and teachers’ teaching methods. Students’ motivation and attitudes First and foremost, one importance factor that can contribute to this problem among secondary school students is the students’ attitudes and motivation. Gardner(1985) view that the students who have positive attitudes and high level of motivation will be more successful than the ... ... middle of paper ... ...illing using past-year examination questions, work sheets and exercise books, contrast with what had stated by Ministry of Education (2003), “Classroom teaching is highly characterized by teacher-centered approaches and chalk-and-talk drill method.” But, excessive of the conventional chalk-and-talk also can make the process of learning get boring. So that, the teachers must be creative to attract students’ attention and make them more interested to learn English. For examples, do some games and activities in groups .It will be more interactive and fun for the students as also stated by Jamali Ismail, “There are also other activities.
State law also mandates that the teachers assigned to teach in bilingual programs in North Carolina must have the suitable bilingual teacher certification (De Ramírez & Shapiro, 2007, p.798). The TBE is composed of an incremental approach to learning English for young students. This evaluation focuses on young students, because they are the main recipients of TBE programs and they are also the primary interest of the evaluator. At the participating schools, the bilingual education program provides content area instruction in Spanish, while English is introduced progressively. In kindergarten, students obtained instruction in Spanish 90% of the time, but as they go to higher grade levels, the amount of instruction that use native language is lessened to include more instruction using English.
The most of the learners in the school are multilingual; well it is my job as a caring teacher to adapt your lessons and curriculum for those students. Almost all of the learners that are in our schools, do not have English as Home language, you find that English is a third or fourth language. We need to better equip ourselves with reality, when we get to tertiary English is the means of communication and medium of instruction between students and lecturers. The study materials are written in English and media like laptops and tablets are operated in English. Why must we let our children suffer because we want to show the world that we can integrate 11 eleven languages in the curriculum.
He has been used to learning a different way for so long that for him it is more difficult than for my 2nd grader. I have gotten experience from both of my children as well as in a classroom and I know it will be difficult but I am ready to learn more. Going into teaching knowing about the Common Core Standards is a great advantage for me and for my future students. My ideal grade would be Kindergarten or 1st grade. Looking into the Common Core Standards for language in Kindergarten, we would start with the basics of learning how to write upper case and lower case letters.
“Many factors affect student performances, latest fad is no cure-all”(Weaver, Reg 2003). Although the involvement of parents in school systems doesn’t fix everything according to the quote, but it does help out a lot in mostly all situations. Elementary Schools First, the parental involvement in Elementary school systems is very important to the young school student. There are many different factors affecting the way school students learn. “And public opinion recognizes that after parental involvement, teacher quality, and class size make the biggest difference in how much students learn”(Weaver, Reg 2003).
With current trends in the field of education, and the increased emphasis of standardized testing data, classrooms of today have become increasingly outcome driven. Although few would argue with the importance of improving classroom instruction and the logic associated with basing instruction on desired student outcomes, this one size fits all approach is not without its detractors. Today many elementary teachers feel pressured to move forward with content instruction even when they may personally feel that there are students in their classrooms who have not sufficiently mastered the skill. This practice is especially troublesome as it relates to the instruction of reading and reading fluency. It is a widely accepted belief among educators and educational researchers that not all children progress at the same rate.
Grammar and the English language is taught schools across the United States. There are many different students in each classroom and as teachers we need to differentiate our instruction. English language learners; also known as ELL; students tend to struggle with grammar but we help them with learning this through implementing a few techniques. There are two types of ELL students; they are students that are not native to where they are living and students that are bilingual. The students that are bilingual are can range from being fluent to in the process of learning another language.
