Supporting IEP & ESL Students: Meeting All Secondary Students' Needs

January 13, 2017

Supporting all students needs can be a challenge, especially when your class includes students with IEPs and students learning English as a second language. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the integration of IEP and ELL students as well as how their needs are communicated and assessed. Teachers also shared the challenges in teaching IEP and ESL students, support provided outside of their classrooms, and successful activities, projects, and method of differentiation.Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about supporting IEP and ESL students in the ELA classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the integration of IEP and ELL students as well as how their needs are communicated and assessed. Teachers also shared the challenges in teaching IEP and ESL students, support provided outside of their classrooms, and successful activities, projects, and method of differentiation.

Read through the chat below to see how your experiences and challenges compare to others'. Consider strategies and tools such as chunking, providing choice, using word games, scaffolding, and visual note taking.

Hope you'll join us on Tuesday January 17th to discuss poetry. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, resource links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
