Developing a Model of Effective English Teaching for Pre-Service Teacher Education
Kim, Youb
Online Submission
This article describes an example of exemplary elementary ELL teaching across a school year. It is followed by my rationale for developing a model of effective teaching of English language learners (ELLs) for pre-service teacher education. I will then explain key themes emerged from the example and suggest future directions for research in order to better prepare pre-service teachers for working with English language learners in their future classrooms. In doing so, I hope to propose developing a "bottom-up" model of effective teaching of English language learners for pre-service teachers who will encounter ELLs in their future classrooms in the United States. It builds on Feiman-Nemser's proposal (2001) that one of core tasks for pre-service teachers in the process of learning to teach is to understand the issues of diversity. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
