    Hello! I just joined this forum mainly to see if I could get some assistance. I'm a college student and I'm really close to getting my degree and heading to student teaching. For one of my last courses, I need to get in contact with an EL teacher or a specialist and ask them 10 questions so that I can learn about ELLs, ELP standards, and instruction. My degree covers K-8 so I can talk with anyone in that grade group. I do prefer K-5 as those are the grades I will be teaching, but any grade in the K-8 range works for me! Thank you so much for reading this. If anyone has the free time and would like to help me with this assignment, please PM me and I will provide you with my email address. I can also post questions on this thread if that would be easier. Again, thanks all!

    If you don't mind posting the questions here, I can ask my coworker who teaches K-4 ELL, and then I can send you her response?
    It doesn't ask for any personal info, right?

    Yes I can post the questions here! They are:
    1. How do you determine which English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards to focus on in your classroom?
    2. What Structured English Immersion (SEI) strategies do you use in your classroom?
    3. How do you ensure your EL students are engaged in lessons?
    4. How do you adapt classroom assessments for your EL students?
    5. How do you determine if your EL students are understanding a concept you are teaching?
    6. What types of grouping techniques or cooperative learning activities do you use in your classroom? How are these beneficial for your EL students?
    7. How do you communicate with the families of your EL students?
    8. How do you integrate technology in your classroom? Which technology resources do you use with your EL students?
    9. What are some ways that you and your school provide a strong home/school connection?
    10. How do you use the state English Language Proficiency Test (e.g., AZELLA) results to help you understand your EL students’ needs?
    Again, thanks so much!

    Hi, I'm so sorry I forgot to reply!
    She said it was too much to type out and would prefer to talk about each question on the phone. I told her it wasn't anyone I knew (a "stranger" from a teacher forum :p) so obviously wasn't comfortable giving out her phone number to someone she didn't know. I'm so sorry!
