    Every day, I receive several emails that share your current biggest struggles as a teacher who works with EL students, whether you're exclusively with multilingual students or you have ELs in your regular education classroom. I read every single email, and although I don't always have the time to respond to you personally, I take all things you tell me to heart and mind.

Besides the obvious ones, such as being knowledgeable in teaching methodologies, standards, and educational psychology, as a teacher of multilingual learners, one must also possess acute cultural awareness.

    Episode 114 - The What and Why of a Scope and Sequence for EL Newcomers

    When I ask teachers: if you could have a magic wand, what would you wish for you in your teaching situation, I get so many requests for a scope and sequence for newcomers and for a newcomer curriculum. So in today’s episode, I wanted to go back to the basics and talk a little bit about the scope and sequence for English language learners.

A must for any teacher with an EL Student!

Ieva provides a wealth of knowledge when it comes to teaching EL students and how to structure lessons based on their ability. She has first hand experience with learning a new language which gives her the opportunity to understand what EL students feel and how they learn. I must listen to any teacher!
