ESL in Elementary Schools

Teaching EL's in elementary school is a challenge.  The students are immersed in academic content. Some have never been in a school situation or have been in one very different than our school model.  A mainstream teacher might have several different EL's in his or her class and they could all be at different levels of English language proficiency.  It is difficult to know how to differentiate for each one.  This website is intended to help mainstream teachers differentiate for their EL's.  Please email me if you have a suggestion for this site.  Thanks! 



One really great comprehensive web site for ESL teachers and students is Larry Ferlazzo's site.  Look in his archives of "best sites for ESL in the content areas".  VERY helpful!
