Although I teach honors algebra 2 as well as a low functioning Essential 1 freshman math class, I am striving to integrate iPads effectively in many ways beyond learning games for practicing computation and mathematical reasoning. IPads can be used effectively to remediate, extend concepts to STEM, and Publish. All of my students have access to using iPads as needed to reinforce math concepts, but they have begun to use them in ways to support their STEM projects too, ( 10 iPads serve my 130 students pretty well at this point… though I would love to have access to more!). First, a special thanks to Kari Huttner and Kyle Schutte for sharing these app.s with me!

Blendi Brahimaj, Wilis Hernandez and Reyson Rosario working together On a recent day at High School of Language and Innovation earth science teacher Katie Walraven did very little. Walraven’s choice to take a back seat to her students was strategic: She was letting her students, who are almost all recent immigrants, do most of the teaching. Her approach reflects one answer to a tricky question: How to teach high school students grade-appropriate content — while at the same time teaching them English.
By: Leonore Ganschow and Elke Schneider (2006) The question of why some students seem to learn a foreign language with ease while others struggle has plagued both foreign language and special educators, especially in recent years. Prior to the 1970's, primarily college-bound students studied foreign languages in our schools in most states.
Author: Baca, G. & Gandara, P. Springer Science Business and Media B.V. Summary: It is argued here that the combination of U.S. federal education policy as embodied in the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 with the passage of a California state initiative that required that "nearly all classroom instruction [be]in English … for a period not normally intended to exceed one year" in 1998 created a "perfect storm" for English Learners.
Teaching English to non-native speakers can be a complicated task, because different students have different levels of English language proficiency. Educators have come up with different English language programs to make it possible for all foreign language speaking students to achieve the same level of language proficiency as their English-speaking peers. There are three different types of programs for non-native speakers, and these include the bilingual program, ESL program, and the dual language program.

Sign-language professors suggested various reasons for the rise. They said it reflected the growing acceptance of American Sign Language to meet college foreign-language requirements, and its usefulness as an employment credential — not only for interpreters, but also for cognitive psychologists, educators, nurses and even scuba divers. With the deep budget cuts of the recession, some universities have cut back their language programs.
By: Sally S. Scott and Elaine Manglitz (1997) Making the college transition Many individuals with learning disabilities experience difficulty in learning a foreign language. Is it any wonder?
Latin, Spanish, or American Sign Language are good choices for kids with LD issues, including dyslexia. " Foreign Language Learning and Learning Disabilities " at LDOnline address foreign language credit for students with Learning Disabilities and states, "If your listening/speaking skills are strong, you may want to try Spanish since the regularity of the sound system in Spanish sometimes helps. If you are stronger at reading, you may want to try Latin, which typically does not involve as much oral communication and often helps build vocabulary in English." Latin is a good choice because many of the roots relate very closely to much of the English language, so it is not like learning an entirely new language. Learning the roots, in particular, can help enhance a child's ability to "pick out pieces" of large words, thereby increasing decoding to a degree, and learning Latin certainly enhances vocabulary skills.
