How do teachers engage ESL students to speak?
When it comes to learning English, there is a lot of interaction, conversation, and cultural background involved. Sometimes, topics covered in instruction talk about something culturally that ESL learners do not understand, know about, or even value. Engaging in conversation is the best practice for ESL learners to improve their skills and achieve their language but if they feel socially isolated from the conversation, they will make little to no progress. Not only do they need English language proficiency training, but cultural knowledge.
What is the importance of differentiated instruction?
The benefits of differentiated instruction go both ways for the educator and the student. It helps educators connect with different learning styles, such as visual or auditorial learners. When a student has a choice about how they learn empowers the student to reach their learning objectives in the best way for them.
