Module 5 The Role of the Teacher in the English Language Development of ELLs

Yixuan Zhanggroup 2

shared writing(video)

final reflection

week 13Literacy education is the most important field for students, considering that they can learn all the other subjects based on their literacy abilities. In week 13, we are talking about reading and writing instruction. I think all these reading and writing instruction are very helpful for improving ELL’s literacy development.1. reading aloud helps children acquire early language skills. These practices can help with the levels of fluency..2. Shared reading is the process that helps with the motivation and high passion for learners. Shared reading offers rich instructional opportunities as teachers share in the workload while students access the text too.3. Guided reading is to meet with the teacher to get explicit instruction to increase reading levels. The teacher divided students into different groups and help them to meet their needs. 4.Silent reading is a brain activity and help them with what they are doing. They can keep track one by one and teacher is like teaching everyone everyday. I think it is useful to reading independently. It can make me thinking independently and have more spaces to look up for the new word and language patterns.1.Reads theater really impresses me and the children on the stage are all doing their performance and they have effective interactions with each other. Interactive writing is the process help students pronounce and spell the words together and see what is going to happen.

week 151.How can ELL teachers support classroom teachers and schools to truly meet the diverse needs of ELLs?I think it is a great idea to use other excellent students as resources for ELLS or for any student that struggles with the coursework. I find that students often learn best from one another!2. What are some effective ways to advocate for ELL students in our schools?Acoording to the personal view and heated discussion. Based on the ground that ELL has a special background that related to family condition, culture difference. Teachers, families, community and ELLs themselves can all have a possibility to advocate. Advocating for ELLs requires many prerequisites that lots families and communities may not be able to carry this out. But I do understand that it is teachers’ responsibility to follow the federal and state educational system that are designed for ELLs. However, “outside the school hours, teachers and administrators are private citizens who have the full right to advocate for change”. ( P. 235, Yanguas et al 2012).

week 161. Language acquisition and development of ELL students Language acquisition process consists of many components and that teachers should consider ELLs' special needs in learning English. Also I believe in the potential of ELLs' first language abilities and the power of bilingual education.. 2.The Nature and Role of culture and identity in the education of ELLs When the first time I step into Purdue, I begin to ask who am I? What is the importance for us to be international students and is the nature and role of culture and identity have great meaning to us of ELL students during the learning process? While sometimes, I find that cultural thing is amazing when it comes to the cooperative learning with peers. Students from different parts of worlds are thinking in disparate patterns.Valuing cultural diversities as well as language diversities of ELLs are very important in the education of ELLs. Cultural background constructs its members' identities, and valuing diverse cultures means valuing each induvidual's identity. ELLs, who are from different cultural backgrounds, need to have their cultures be valued by others for them to develop positive identities in the society.

This is the last module of the whole semester and a great thanks to Dr. Wayne E. Wright, who have brought us with sufficient reading material and the opportunities for us to understand and communicate more with each other to get a deeper knowledge in English language learning. Thanks for all of you and I really hope to meet you next semester!

During shared writing, the teacher transcribes the entire text while engaging students in a rich discussion about how the text should be composed.

    The pictures/video you included from the classrooms is very relevant. I always like to see what is going on in other schools/classrooms.

    Very nice work. I really enjoyed hearing your experiences as an international student at Purdue. You make a really great point about collaborating with peers. It is really important to respect the different ways that people from other cultures think and to use those differences to create a richer, deeper understanding of each other.

    Hi Yixuan, your poster is really helpful for us to review Module 5 and get the idea about how important a teacher would be for ELL students. Appropriately designed instructions can make a difference. Besides, thank you for the final reflection which is a perfect ending of our group's course work. Well done!
