The following infographic, 8 Ways to Support Language Learners, by Edgenuity provides tips and strategies for supporting English learners. These are research based according to the author, Debbie Malone. Tips include multiple exposure to vocabulary, setting high expectations, providing explicit instruction, activating background knowledge, making lessons accessible, allowing use of the home language in strategic ways, modeling metacognitive strategies, and doing close readings. We have several webinar recordings where we elaborate on these strategies.
Each week we scour the internet to find great infographics to share on our various social networks (@TESOL, @AmericanTESOL, and @ESLWebinars). Check out past infographics for teaching English with technology here.
