Episode 61 - Three Tips for Classroom Teachers with ESL Newcomers
Play • 13 min

We all know that new students start school not only in August or September, but anytime of year. 

Often I get asked by general education teachers how to help a new English learner, so I have decided to record a series of episodes specifically for general education teachers. They will help you make meaningful connections with your multilingual students, as well as give you some simple steps to help them be successful, even when it seems like they don’t understand.

I’ll help you feel prepared to welcome your new student, confident you’ll help them succeed, and excited to help them take on this new adventure.

Having an English learner newcomer in your class can be one of the most rewarding experiences in education.

What you will hear about in this episode:

  • Who exactly is an English language newcomer?
  • How general education teachers can help welcome a new English language learner
  • Overcoming the language barrier
  • Steps to welcome a newcomer
  • Developing relationships with your district’s ESL teacher to gather the information needed to help your new student and past history
  • Getting a newcomer will mean that you are now a content and language teacher
  • The information that an ILP will give you for your new student.
  • The ways a newcomer will take state tests the first year in the U.S.
