F...l....u....e.....n.....c.....y As I was finishing up my report cards a few weeks ago. I noticed that MANY of my students were FAILING not meeting the standards in fluency. I always talk about fluency, but I've never really stressed it. My teammates also had the same problem. They suggested that we all start doing Fry Phrases. I've also started using Jodi's Fluency packs. Then, as one of my Daily 5 mini-lessons, I did a fluency lesson. I made these posters to help them remember. With each poster there is also an action:Rate- Not too fast and not too slow {they pretend to run slow and run fast- with their arms}Expression- Don't sound like a robot {they do the robot dance- channel your inner 80's dance moves}Accuracy-Read the words right {they do a check mark in the air with their pointer finger}Punctuation- Read the punctuation marks {they make an exclamation point in the air} Then, once a week, after I do a running record on a student, I quickly have them fill out this self-assessment.

Reprinted from Essential Teacher, Volume 4, Issue 3,September 2007, Alexandria, VA: Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) “The city is more crowded. We would need more signs and traffic lights,” said one student. "We would have to live in apartments,” said another. The class was brainstorming how living in the city compared with living in the country. In a collaborative or co-teaching setting, the ESL teacher “pushes into” the general education classroom to collaborate with the teacher. Co-teachers are using the same physical space. Over the past few years co-teaching has become more popular as low incidence school districts search for ways to best serve the needs of their English language learners. Compare the co-teaching experience that I had with Ms.P with that of another ESL teacher in New Jersey. Paulo is a “push in ESL teacher” in a large school district. This is collaborative teaching at its worse. Teach and write. ESL teachers, however, cite many concerns.
