Week 3 – Discussion 2


ELL students, whose first language is Spanish, comprise the largest number/percentage of ELL students in U.S. schools.  Over 70% of ELL students are Spanish speakers.

Lexical knowledge of English is an important aspect of English acquisition.  How could you use Lexical knowledge to support Spanish-speaking ELL students in a classroom setting?  How would you assess this support?  How would you know your lexical knowledge support is effective?  

Guided Response: Review and respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.  What suggestions can you offer to help your classmates enhance their proposal?  Do you know of a different or better way to assess the outcomes your classmates are hoping to achieve with students?  Do you have suggestions regarding the use of art or some other concepts that might make the lesson more relevant or engaging? Perhaps nothing needs to be changed, but do you have a potential follow up lesson to share?   Be sure to also respond to any questions from classmates and the instructor.
