Teacher Tip: Consider a Text with Your English Learners in Mind


MG5D2904

As you examine a text for instruction, notice text factors that might be difficult for the English learners in your class. What are students' levels of background knowledge related to the topic? Think about vocabulary such as idioms, colloquialisms, contractions, and words with more than one meaning. Notice language structures, illustration support, and graphics. Consider cultural challenges.
