By also pairing the ELL students with other students who are willing to help them learn, this strategy is going to go well. 4. If you taught the strategy…What would you change about the implementation of this strategy to further increase ELLs’ engagement and interaction with the material? What would you do differently next time? 5. If you did not teach the strategy… Can you predict what successes or challenges students or teachers may encounter when using this strategy in a
