Episode 91 - EL Curriculum Magic and Mastering Classroom Dynamics (Q and A)
Play • 19 min

As I was planning this episode out, I looked at all the things we talk about on this podcast. That is a lot! From EL newcomer teaching and all that is related to that, how to teach grammar and vocabulary, where to find materials, different teaching strategies and tips, teacher collaboration, ELs in regular education classrooms, and so many more topics. And since this podcast is for all of you involved in teaching multilingual learners, I wanted to make sure your voices are heard. On a daily basis, I received several emails that share your current biggest struggles as a teacher who works with EL students. After going through the questions, I began to see a pattern. Many of them fall under similar umbrellas. So let's do a little Q and A, shall we? I picked the most frequently repeated questions during the last few months, and I'm answering them in this episode.

What you will hear about in this episode:

  • Common struggles faced by teachers regarding curriculum planning
  • Details on the content covered in my curriculum guide (essential questions, objectives, vocabulary, grammar structures, etc.)
  • Challenges faced by teachers in supporting middle school EL students and structuring class time
  • Importance of structuring lessons in a predictable way for all students
