ELLs may struggle in content-area courses such as literature, science, math, and social studies because they haven't acquired the literacy, language skills, or background knowledge necessary to master that new content knowledge. One way to address that challenge is through effective lesson planning. Depending on their different stages of English proficiency and literacy, ELLs will benefit from the skills that a well-designed lesson can address. Effective lessons include: building background knowledgeexplicit instruction and modelingguided practicepeer practiceassessment of content learned For examples of content-related lesson plans for ELLs, take a look at the following: Teacher-student interactions, as well as peer interactions, are critical for learning.

Feedback - How to give it and how to receive it

Discussing issues and shortcomings allows an indication of performance and progression, as well as functioning as a problem-solving tool to bring you and your workforce or co–workers closer to your goals. However, feedback can generate fear, hostility and misinformation if carried out incorrectly, devaluing the process entirely. Here we provide some valuable tips on how to present, and how to receive, feedback with the aim of improving long-term career development. When giving feedback: 1) Be positive: Realise when giving feedback that criticism hurts, and that for this reason it should be delivered in as positive a manner as possible. 2) Be specific: Rather than exaggerating problems or speaking in broad terms about failings, it is far more productive to select key areas of focus and explain clearly how tasks could have been performed more effectively.

Writing Clearly: An Editing Guide (second edition) Janet Lane and Ellen Lange (1999) Boston: Heinle & Heinle Pp. xxiii + 294 + glossary ISBN 0-8384-0949-0 (paper) US $29.95 Although there has been a trend back toward legitimizing formal teaching of grammar, much second-language writing research indicates that explicit, analytical instruction in grammar using drills and exercises without any discourse context is not always effective in getting students to write standard academic English [1].


Moreover, grammar per se does not address rhetorical issues such as how to support assertions, organization of points in an essay, achieving academic writing style, or revising for clarity. The text is divided into three major sections: Global Errors, Local Errors, and Beyond Grammar: Other Ways to Make Writing Clear. The second section, Local Errors (pp. 181-263), has the same organization as the first section, including the end-of-chapter writing exercise based on the CNN video. End Note Reference. Scholar.
