Have you noticed that the dynamics of your classrooms has changed over the past few years? The influx of ELL students has drastically changed along with the complexity of our classes. During this session I will walk through the ways I support and assess ELL students in my science 7 to 9 classes. We will look at how to effectively build various levels of assignments and assessments in minimal time. Finally, this session will show how teaching with a hands-on based model with minimal notes has not only built confidence in my ELL students, but all students. Though combining interactive notes with doodle notes and bullet notes students no longer take hours of notes but they use the concepts they have learned to apply and summarize to various activities. This style has taken my teaching to the next level. All participants get full access to my resources through a google share folder.
