Clinical Field Experience B: Reteaching For ELLs

Assessment Description

It is important that teachers reteach and provide small group instruction for students who have not demonstrated mastery in the skills and concepts associated with language learning and content areas. When teachers reteach, it is imperative that they utilize research-based differentiated instructional and student practice activities that differ from the initial lesson. Reteaching a lesson in the exact same way as before, does not address different ability levels or individual learning differences.

  • Were students engaged during your instruction and interactive practice activity? If so, how do you know? If not, what would you change to ensure students were engaged?
