There are many strategies teachers can use to assist colleagues so they apply effective English language learning (ELL) techniques and resources. This lesson gives you an overview of those strategies, including the parent's role and policy.

Share Knowledge & Show Your Teaching

Kerri is an English Language Learning (ELL) teacher. She notices that the grade teachers at her school are often overwhelmed because the English Language Learners (ELLs) in their classes struggle to make progress. Kerri knows that it's time to model effective ELL techniques for those teachers so that they also contribute to the progress of ELLs. There are basically two approaches to model for colleague teachers: sharing knowledge and showing teaching practice to others. How can an ELL teacher do this? Let's take a look.

Sharing Knowledge

Kerri knows that teachers work really hard to help ELLs make academic progress. However, grade teachers do not have a certification to know how to apply effective ELL techniques and resources. For this reason, a first step to modeling for other teachers is to share this specialized knowledge with them. However, it's necessary to do it in a tactful way. Rather than just grabbing grade teachers and telling them what they should do to help ELLs, the following approaches are the professional way to go.
