Content-area Instruction English language learners in United States face multiple challenges for achieving academic success. In order to successfully complete a task, they need to master both English as a language form and how it is used in core content classes. Consequently, teachers need to implement different content-area instructional approaches and methods in order to help the ELL students. Among these methods are the Content-enriched English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, the Cognitive Academic Language Approach (CALLA), and Sheltered content instruction. Content based or enriched English as a Second Language instruction is an approach that provides second language learners with instruction in content and language.
By using TT as a learning resource, teacher hopes the student can notice the target language input given, negotiate the meaning, and practice the language by responding the teacher’s instructions. Through this way, students are expected to be facilitated and have a big chance to be active in teaching and learning process so that they can improve their knowledge about l... ... middle of paper ... ...ions of using code switching in FL teaching of eleventh grade students of SMA N 1 Ponorogo in the Academic Year of 2013/2014. 4.

Beyond English Development: Bilingual Approaches to Teaching Immigrant Students and English Language Learners What a feeling! Learning a new language gives individuals a new way of thinking and feeling. Learning a new kind of language involves having total commitment and total involvement from students and teachers. In the article, Beyond English Development: Bilingual Approaches to Teaching Immigrant Students and English Language Learners indicates there are various standard definitions that describe language (Billings, Martin-Beltran, and Hernandez, 2010). Language is used to communicate with others and is essentially human, but not limited to only human beings.
Classroom interaction is an extensively studied field of Second Language Acquisition that often involves many different investigation of the cooperation between students and teachers (Mackey, 2007; Mackey 2012). One of the main focuses of interaction is corrective feedback in L2 classrooms with the target issue of the language itself and how it is used in the L2 context. Corrective feedback occurs when a student produces an oral error, which is usually followed with the teacher’s reaction in the form of correction. After the teacher’s corrective turn, the student may respond with a sign of learning or comprehension by producing an uptake that reacts to the correction. There have been many scholastic contributions to the field of corrective feedback.
In other words, it is essential to establish clear aims and contents and to arrange any aids or materials required for the class, but we need to be ready to modify the original plan on the spot if necessary. Having considered this first idea, this part of the essay will analyse the rationale on which the lesson is based. Lesson 1: Describing objects. This lesson is set to help students describe objects in English when they do not know or do not remember the name of the item given. In my opinion, this is a valuable skill that benefits both natives and second language (L2) users, particularly when the students live in an English speaking country where they often need to request objects without knowing its name.
WM involves ‘the temporary storage and manipulation of information’ necessary for the operation of complex cognitive tasks (Hummel & Holyoak 2003); WM therefore is an indicator of our capacity for thinking and for language processing. The present study will be empirically examining the possible relation between WM working memory and L2 vocabulary learning to test the hypothesis that the capacity of WM is correlated with vocabulary learning rate. Background of literature A WM model first proposed by Baddeley and Hitch in 1974 consists of three basic components: the central executive, the phonological loop and the visual/ spatial sketchpad. In 2000 this model was extended with the multimodal episodic buffer. The central executive directs information to the three processes: the phonological loop, the visual/ spatial sketchpad, and the episodic buffer.
By knowing the result of this study, English lecturers and students will finally know whether they find ICT helpful in English teaching and learning or not. In consequence, they can decide the best way to adjust their teaching media towards the students’ needs. They will be also pushed to increase their ability and explore more about ICT to be used as appropriate medium for teaching process in this globalization

The three strands of the curriculum guide educators to equip students with a powerful means for improving achievement at school, as well as enhancing social, cultural and vocational opportunities in all areas of their lives (Humphrey et al., 2013). Language is a means by which students develop personal power in their lives (Anthony, Johnson, Mickelson, & Preece, 1992). Through language students give form and substance to their thoughts, grow in their ability to interact effectively with others, and shape personal realities.
By connecting strategies for learning, such as searching, compre¬hending, interpreting, composing, and teaching content knowledge, students are given the opportunity to succeed in their education. These elements include: fundamental skills such as phonemic awareness, phonemic decoding, and other word analysis skills that support word reading accuracy; text reading fluency; strategies for building vocabulary; strategies for understanding and using the specific textual features that distinguish different genres; and self-regulated use of reading comprehension strategies.
Multiliteracies and their essential seat in the classroom This essay will explore the essentialness of teachers expanding their classroom learning to include ‘multiliteracies’. The term ‘Multiliteracies’ has two important aspects, language variation and multimodal texts (New Learning Online, n.d.) To understand language variation this essay will look at the origin of language and its progression to the idea of ‘Englishes’. Secondly, the essay will explore multimodal texts, how and why it was developed by the ‘digital age. Most importantly, the essay will break down why these two modes of multiliteracy are critical criteria for the classroom environment and an educator’s repertoire. Language Variation: The first form of multiliteracies is
