Consider the following situation through the lens of a preschool ELL educator. A co-worker and fellow preschool educator approaches you frustrated. She has several students in her program that are English language learners at various degrees of fluency. She feels frustrated that she has to provide “extra” help to these children and wants your expertise as a fellow educator of English language learners.
For your initial post, discuss 2 strategies that you could share with your co-worker on how educators can support dual language learners in literacy and language development. Think of strategies that could support not only the ELL child but the whole group as well. Support your ideas with outside sources. Your sources can be credible websites or articles from the Online Library.
