voices from the field
Voices from the Field
  • “[I can take] this work from my ELD classes and begin to do this with my English classes.”
  • “I will continue research on identifying and understanding language features.”
  • “By the end of the year, with ___coaching me, I felt very comfortable planning and teaching the ‘juicy sentence’ lesson.”
  • “I am hoping that we get to work together again next year, although I am not sure if I will be teaching an ELD class, But I now know that the sentences can be used in any class.”

  • School and district leadership are essential
  • Infrastructure of support is vital
