ELLs in the Communications Classroom
  • Their background knowledge in Literature, Poetry and Drama may be limited or non-existent.
  • They may need more time and teacher support to process complex reading assignments.
  • They will likely need guidance, support and models for higher level academic writing tasks.
  • They may need encouragement to speak in class (participation and oral presentations).
  • Written supports, outlines, study guides are all helpful to support their listening ability.
