Week 5 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
The Effective ELL Classroom
Read Chapter 13 and the article, “English Language Teacher Expertise: The Elephant in the Room.” Then, research and locate a video of a classroom lesson on the Internet (please include the link). Critique the teacher’s actions. Identify which ELL strategies the teacher used and analyze how well these strategies worked.
Guided Response: Select and respond to at least two classmates’ posts. To write your responses, view the classmates’ videos, and then evaluate your classmates’ responses—Do you notice something different from your classmates? Does their analysis hold up? How does your analysis compare? Also, please respond to any Instructor questions.
