I'm a 7th Grade Social Studies teacher (focus is on Medieval World). This is my 3rd year teaching and have thus far been lucky enough to have students that have spoken English. This year, I have students who speak very little English if any at all. Their first language is Spanish and I don't speak any Spanish. I will be partnering them with students in class who are Spanish/English speakers, but I don't only want to rely on those students to help them do the work. I feel like its unfair to them. I've had the students in my class for a week already and because the students don't understand, they are becoming behavior issues during instruction. I'm looking for help with strategies to help keep the students engaged and encouraged in class as well as how to differentiate my lessons so they can make the most of being in class and have a good learning experience. I use a lot of visuals in class, but I know that's not going to be enough. ANY help or advice will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
