SIOP Scoring

The teacher had an overall great lesson on writing to the editor. Her objectives were not clearly stated on the board or reviewed with the students. She did however in each segment explained what was forthcoming in the assignment. The teacher used a primary source on the letter to an editor from a newspaper. This was highly effective because its non-fiction and students will be able to relate to a concern of current events. The instructor interacted with students from asking questions to explain more in detail. The activity she provided was more lecturing and asking for feed back. Although, she did have them read silently and one student read for the whole class. Her lesson delivery was specific and content objectives were supported in using a web map. From the observation, the students appeared engaged but they sat for the entire segment, which could have been broken down by allowing different student to come to the board and write in the web-map. Another interaction the instructor did well was giving the student enough time to think about the question and respond. Teacher did use a vocabulary strategy that was impressive for this class. The word, “bad” was used and she asked the question of how to use another synonym. This is a great strategy for ELL because they will learn new words and know they can have the same meaning just in a different context. One of the drawbacks in the lesson was not enough hands-on interaction between the students. It was mainly teacher to student. For an ELL this may be confusing if she is not checking in with the ELL student, making sure they are understanding the material. She did not once go around the tables and check for understanding with any of the student except for asking question that were needed to be answered. The assessments that

    Ms. Brown managed her class very well as the students knew what to do when they walked into the room. There was minimal redirection by her, the students knew what to do at the appropriate times, and were on task with the given assignments. Some students participated more verbally, but all of them were working on the assignment. When problems arose during the lesson, she redirected them verbally and nonverbally.…

    Mrs. Minor-Walker gained their attention by letting them know that she is happy to see them this morning and hoping that they enjoy the lesson plan that she has ready for them. At this very moment, I observed the body language of all the students and wrote down the actions that stood out to me the most. During the lesson plan lecture, I noticed some students who were passing notes to others, tapping their foot on the ground to indicate that they were bored, some who put their head down to influence sleeping etc. Then, there were the students who sat upright and looked interested in the lesson, ones who raised their hands to ask questions indicating that they want to understand the lesson plan. It…

    One of the U.S. educational challenges of today is meeting the educational needs of the English language learners. This growing diverse population of English learners has to simultaneously learn to build their English language proficiency and the content area within their grade level standard. This makes it a double challenge for them and their teachers. After observing a lesson based on a video simulation of a classroom, I will discuss five components: comprehensible input, ongoing specific and immediate feedback, grouping structures and techniques, building background and vocabulary development and student engagement that were integrated into the lesson. I will then discuss what methods and techniques should be utilized when teaching English learners. I will close by sharing my thought about what I liked and felt could have been done difference. The delivery of a lessons and how the language objectives are deliver is significant in choosing strategies for the ELL. First I will reflex on at comprehensible input.…

    During the first half of the lesson the teacher moved at a particularly fast pace. Whilst understandably a swift pace is required in order to fit the breath of information into the lesson I feel this was to the detriment of student learning in some instances. For example when asking questions of students it was common for the teacher to answer before providing sufficient time for students to answer. This had the consequence of stopping all but the quickest students a chance to be involved with the lesson. Again this was also seen when individual students were picked out by name to repeat a phrase paying specific attention to their intonation; on numerous occasions at the start of the lesson upon speaking the requested phrase the teacher was very quick to repeat the same phrase using the correct intonation. This style of teaching limits student talking time which is a key aspect when trying to engage the active memory of the students in order to promote retention of the material being taught. A better structure would have been to elicit the correct repetition of the request phrase from another student and then returning to the initially asked student to repeat the phrase once more. Using this suggested structure would promote student talking time and allow all students more time to hear the correct intonation of the phrase.…

    The teacher ignored most of what was going on and mostly focused on teaching what she was obligated to do for the day with no disregard to the students that wanted to learn. I found that there was a lack of classroom management for the same reasons as the climate. No assertion in rules, no discipline, no rewards, and not trying to get the class out of there cliques to work with others. What I learned from observing this class is to make sure there is always classroom involvement and to communicate with the students.…

    For me, this course has helped me understand my ELL students and ESOL experiences I’ve had in the past. It has helped my validate many of the decisions I made in an effort to help my students. It also gave me a better understanding of student behavior and challenges. I feel that if I had taken this course prior to my work teaching overseas, I would have recognized earlier some of the difficulties my students were experiencing. Because I had to learn through experience, I needed more time to recognize patterns of behavior and determine the underlying causes myself. I described some of my most challenging students throughout the activities assigned in this course. If I had known exactly what to look for when students are displaying symptoms…

    However, a difficulty mentioned in the article Best Practice for ELLs: Vocabulary Instruction when teaching vocabulary, is that “teachers assume that English learners know a concept and the word for that concept in their primary language.” Often this is seen with “technical” terms in math, science, geography, and history. The article suggests that if the student doesn’t know the word in their primary language, it should be taught “directly in English.” By understanding this concept is why assessing the ELL before starting a lesson is…
