Perhaps, the teachers decide to use the pull-out model, which consists of forming small groups of students and teach them, rather than the push-in model, which including the students in content area material. This is because sometimes the teachers did not know how to plan for them because the content area teacher did not provided with material for them to teach the ESL students.

Although researchers have found negative effects in learning to read phonologically, teachers can still strategically incorporate it into the classroom as long as they are aware of its potential negative effects. According to Bentin S. (1991), phonological awareness is "the ability to recognize the internal phonetic structure of spoken words" (271). This is measured, he explains, by the individual's ability to "isolate and manipulate individual phonetic segments in words" (271). When young children begin to read, their educator utilizes phonology by encouraging them to "sound it out". Here the children take a word, such as "cat" for example, and read it by breaking it into phonetic sounds: "cu"-"aa"-"tuh"..."cat".
The exemplary teachers encourage students to ask questions and discuss their ideas with classmates; they also pose open-ended, higher-level thinking questions.

If you walked into my classroom during the guided reading block, you would notice Arlington’s six features of effective elementary literacy instruction exhibited in various types of activities. Students would be divided into five groups according to their reading level, similar reading processes, needs and interests.
