Latest Podcast: Let’s hear from the students

Ep. 3: Annotations as Entry Points with MLL/ELLs Rewiring Our Teaching

In this episode, Katie and I discuss how annotations serve as entry points for students as they engage with texts in English, and as key data points for us in navigating which scaffolds or strategies best support a student. In this way, we can start with student interest, then move from there! If you work with newcomers or "beginner" ELL/ENL/emergent bilingual students, this is a concrete tool you can use to support both their language learning, comprehension of texts and learner agency. — Send in a voice message:

  3. Season 2, Ep. 1: Let's hear from the students

In our classrooms, student voices lead. Their interests and needs drive the curriculum (explained really well in an upcoming podcast with a fellow teacher), so I realized the podcast should do that as well. You will be hearing more from our recent grads through their own writing, sharing and discussions. I will also share supports on how to use their work as tools in your classes, whether for your planning or your instruction.
