Try This........
Try to scaffold the ELL student's understanding of content by using graphic organizers, visual aids, help from peers, and home language support.  As the student's skills in English increase, you can gradually remove these supports. 
Here are some sample graphic organizers that would work well in the English/Language Arts classroom:
Also, if you have 6-7 minutes to spare this week, please take a peek at this middle school language arts teacher.  The majority of the students in her classroom are ELL's and they are at varying English proficiency levels.  Notice how she scaffolds her instruction and incorporates a focus question to go along with the reading so it is not too overwhelming for the ELL. 
Did you know............
Did you know that if you click on the ELL icon in Powerschool, you will be taken to a screen that will inform you if you need an interpreter for home communication.  If you do, our district will hire one for you.  All you need to do is call Laurie Thies and she will make the arrangements for you.
