    I am taking the second course in a program to become certified in ESL/ELL. For my first assignment, I need to ask ESL teachers some questions. I wonder if anyone would be willing to help. If you would like to answer all of the questions, that would be great. If not, even one or two would be a tremendous help. Thank you in advance!

    1. Briefly describe your responsibilities as an ESL teacher.

    2. How do your responsibilities as an ESL teacher differ
    from that of a classroom teacher?

    3. What do you do to bridge the relationship between home
    and school for your students?

    4. How do you assist classroom teachers in helping them to
    work with ELLs in their classrooms?

    5. How do you work with students from a range of cultural
    and linguistic backgrounds?

    6. What are the advantages and disadvantages of push-in ESL

    7. What are the advantages and disadvantages of pull-out ESL

    8. What types of formal and informal assessments do you give?

    9. How many students do you work with and how do you group
    them for instruction?

    10. What is the requirement for students to receive

    11. How do you promote the affective aspects of learning?

    Not all ESL teachers are pull-out teachers; nowadays many of them are regular classroom teachers.

    It's true. Because of an AZ state law, all ELL students must be not mixed with other students that are not ELL. Therefore, some schools have had to have entire classrooms full of just ELL teachers due to budget cuts and it being impossible to pull out every student for 4 hours a day. (The state requirement is they receive a 4 hr block of time for vocabulary, grammar, listening/speaking, and writing)
