Anyone using Eureka math? How do you use it with low proficiency students? I have a 4th header who’s really struggling.

Here's a great webinar recording from the US Dept of Ed on "ELs with Disabilities": Webinar begins at 11:54 (You'll need to fast-forward) (Original airdate June 18, 2018)

A3: SIOP has made me more aware of comprehensible input & use of ELLs home language to support instruction in English.

Some school districts require individual language plans for ELLs. It's borrowed from Special Ed's IEP. Important to remember that Special Ed is a remedial program. ESL should be developmental.

A2: I think one of biggest challenges is differentiating for variety of ELD levels in 1 class.

All too often educators don't recognize that they're teaching immigrants! They think of their Ss as "learners" or . There's so little acknowledgment of all that comes along with being new to a country, particularly if you're a refugee or undocumented.

A6 cont. Side note: ever checked out Alberta () ELD standards? They're really on a great track!! I prefer them over most US based models. 😊 Way to go, friendly neighbors!

Agreed. Amp up the Tier 1 instruction with proper scaffolding and support and prevent the need for interventions. Prevention over intervention.

Incorporating books and activities that represent ALL kids and their home cultures into what is being taught...when kids see themselves in the books and activities, they feel valued and part of our classroom family.

A4 Yes! However, I've recently run into challenges with schools/districts/publishers questioning the need for ELL specific training/literature if the strategies CAN in fact be useful for all students. An interesting shift.

Making your lessons accessible to all Ss starts with celebrating the strengths your Ss are bringing to the classroom – and setting high goals for each of them, says educator :

A5: Student performance descriptors by ELD level help us set appropriate expectations based on progressions for 1 level to next.

I'm adding a new decoration at the end of the year! This is significant bc it means I'm planning on coming back next year. To the same job for the 3rd year in a row... Which is the longest I've stayed in any job. This job is hard, but so rewarding.

A3: I also like backwards design approach of starting with rubric differentiated by ELD level & working back through supports ELLs need to meet goal.
