Sheltered Strategies

Making a Print and Image-Rich Classroom Environment for ELL Students


What does print and image-rich mean?

  • A classroom in which students interact with and have immediate access (NOT on handouts that go in their binder) to visuals and text that promote content learning

    • Including, but not limited to: charts, diagrams, student work, teacher examples, books, newspapers, other resources

  • In other words, lots of pictures and lots of words on the walls


Why is it important?

  • Promotes literacy

  • Aids in classroom management

  • Invites students to engage


Why is it important for ELL students in particular?

  • Without complete fluency in a language, ESL students have to rely on visual cues. Having near-immediate access to vocabulary and images needed for and associated with academic language and procedures lowers the affective filter for ESL students, making second language acquisition easier and less of an emotional risk.

  • In other words, having pictures and words on walls makes learning English easier, and makes practicing it less scary.
