Carolyn M.
Answer:

For this question, I will be teaching a student who can already write an awesome paragraph. There are basically five steps to essay planning. 1. Analyze the Essay Prompt 2. Make a Claim 3, Identify Supporting Reason 4. Claim + Reasons = Essay Thesis 5. Essay Thesis => Essay Outline For example, in number 1 the student needs to look at the topic and the direction words in the prompt. Then he/she will do some activities to help them learn how to "Analyze the Essay Prompt. There will be activities to do for each of these steps. Next, the student will learn how to write the different types of paragraphs in an essay. These include the introductory paragraph the three-body paragraphs, and the conclusion. There will be many activities to make sure the student understands what needs to be in each paragraph. This is just a short overview on how to write a five-paragraph essay.

Question:

How do you teach an elementary-age ESL student English?

Answer:

When teaching an elementary-age ESL student English, I not only need to have patience but also must be very caring and active using "Total Physical Response" when teaching. I am always very positive with the students, even when the child is having problems saying and remembering words. I have learned that if the child is comfortable with you, he/she will be able to retain the information better and will not get frustrated. When presenting new material I must use the way the student learns best, visual, auditory tactile, etc. For example, if the student is a visual learner, I will have many different props to help them understand the lesson. Making learning fun is very important for these students. I hope this gives you an idea of the type of teacher I am.

Question:

How do you teach a third or fourth grader to decode a multisyllable word?

Answer:

I would use the "Decoding Big Words Strategy" with students in grades 3 - 6. First, the student learns how to recognize prefixes and suffixes. This includes learning the most common syllables in the English language. The next step is learning the six basic syllable spelling patterns in English. While teaching this strategy, I use many different activities to help the student retain the information. This is just an overview of this strategy. I love it when a student realizes they can read big words.
