Ways I Can Address My Diverse Learners
  1. Assessing Fluency
    1. Fluent reading and speaking is mainly about the ability use volume, tone, emphasis, phrasing and oral expression when reading a passage. EB's have to be able to decode words accurately, recognize words in context, and expressively interpret the text.
      1. Assessing fluency is more that just making sure they can read so many words a minute, but to make sure that they comprehend what is been read. It is important for me to make sure they read with feeling and emotions. I can modeling how to read that way so ELL's are exposure to hearing and learning the correct way of reading fluently.
    2. Informal Assessment
      1. Informal assessments can help me target a student's problem areas and give me a fully-developed idea of students abilities so I can revamp instruction if need.
        1. Performance-based Assessment
          1. Performance-based assessments represent a set of strategies that are based on everyday tasks. I can used to assess oral language and academic skills. When using this assessment, it is important that the person know what is expected from the beginning. Performance--based assessment can be things like retelling a story orally or by drawing a picture, acting out a play, playing games, or having a conversation about a topic in whole group or small group settings. Performance-based assessments usually don't have just one answer so when grading, teachers have to sue their better judgement. Using a checklist or rubric is a good way to track students progress and can also be added to his or her portfolio..
          2. Portfolio
            1. Portfolios are a way for me to monitored a student's growth throughout the year. By collecting a mixture of students' work of a period of time can help me verify students achievements. Portfolios usually consist of a collection of the students work such as drawings, writing samples, worksheets, recorded presentations, formal and informal tests, and rubrics/checklists of performance task. It is important to have my ELL's involved in selecting what goes into his or her portfolio. By them helping me make selections, they can see his or her growth over the year and help them me develop down-to-earth goals.
        2. Identifying ELL's
          1. Federal law states that all school disrticts are legally obligated to identify students that speak a language other that English. Even though they are obligated to identify ELL's, they are not giving a specific procedure to do so.
            1. Home Language Survey
              1. Home Language Surveys are forms that parents/guardians have to fill out during the registration process for their child(ren) at school. The survey ask questions like what is the students first language, what language is used at home, and/or what language is used when talking with friends. This information is used to identify students that speak a different language and get them the appropriate instruction they need.
                1. Students that speak a language besides English are offered a program built to help them become successful in school. Parents can deny their children the right to receive services.
          2. Authentic Assessment
            1. Authentic assessment is a for of assessment that ask students to complete a task by applying the knowledge and information they have learned.
              1. By using authentic assessment with my ELL students or any of my students, I can immediately determine if learning is taking place.
                1. This form of assessments gives the students the ability to show what they have learned as well as help me know if the student understand what has been taught. I want my students to be able to construct his or her own correct meaning of what the skill is. By students completing several different task that are geared around the same skills, that lets me know that have developed a understanding of that skill. I have always used different task in my classroom to make sure that my students understood what I was teaching I just did not know it had a name to it.
            2. Ongoing Assessment
              1. Ongoing assessments is a process that helps me know where your students are throughout the school year.
                1. Writing Assessment
                  1. Emerging Bilinguals will definitely make grammar errors when having a writing assignment. I have to make sure that the instructions and/or prompt for the writing assignment be clear and understanding.
                    1. Analytical approach is usually the method teachers use to evaluate ELL's writing. When using this method, I have to identify the different features of the written work and score each part.
                      1. ELLs can benefit from a good comment on a writing assignment. The comment needs to target a particular trait.
                  2. Oral Assessment
                    1. Emerging Bilinguals need to develop both receptive and expressive oral language. They must be able to have conversation skills and academic language skills.
                      1. Receptive Oral Language indicates the technique of comprehending what has been said. If a EB does not have the foundation of receptive techniques, they will not be able to establish solid expressive skills.
                        1. Expressive Language indicates the ability to speak and transfer thoughts and ideas to others.
                  3. Assessing ELL's
                    1. After a student has been identify as an ELL student they must be giving a language proficiency test and a academic skills assessment. After they are assessed the test examiner and I can see what level of English they know and where do I need to start academic skills.
                      1. There are several thing that I need to know about my students educational background like the how long have they been in school, what grade where they in, is there something maybe religious base that will stop them from attending school, and/or any health issues assessing a ELL student. I have to make sure the test that I give is not bias.
