Learning Content Learning English – Podcast Episode 78 | Classnotes Podcast 78
Classnotes Podcast (September 30, 2010) While content-area teachers focus their instruction in their subject area, like math, science, language arts, etc., students who are learning English may struggle with the academic language of the subject. But there are resources for teachers. Kristin Grayson, M.Ed., an IDRA education associate, says that the first step is to review the students’ assessments that indicate each student’s language proficiency level, and then instruction can be delivered in ways that actually benefit the entire class. English language proficiency standards are a valuable guide for teachers to plan lessons that engage English learners and increase achievement.
