Supporting the English Language Learner: Put It Into Practice

Put It Into Practice

Create a Handbook

In this ongoing activity, you will collect literacy resources in a Handbook for Effective Literacy Practices to use in your classroom.


Do this activity with your colleagues to create the most comprehensive collection of resources and instructional plans.

Today, you will create a section on how you support English Language Learners in their literacy development. Include resources you already use, and plan to use in the future. Place them in the section for Supporting the English Language Learner. You may want to include:

  • the lesson plan you developed in Activity #2, adding additional lesson plans as you teach them
  • the catalog of literature you developed in Activity #3
  • a list of quality, multicultural literature that supports your curriculum themes and the cultures of your students
  • a list of topics to stimulate oral language using the Language Experience approach

Submit a copy of your completed Handbook at the end of the workshop series.
