Pappamihiel, N. Eleni; Knight, Jennifer Hatch
Childhood Education, v92 n4 p276-280 2016
Second language learners face countless obstacles in the classroom, including communication and comprehension limitations and difficulty building relationships with peers. Many teachers struggle to build an inclusive classroom environment and ensure all students, especially those with linguistic and other learning disadvantages, are learning. This article presents a detailed account of how one 2nd-grade teacher in the United States used a digital language experience approach project to help English language learners (ELLs) to be involved a class field trip and the subsequent class activities. The article shows how this innovative method, typically used only with older students, has the potential to ensure the optimal involvement of ELLs in the lesson and effective integration into the overall classroom community.
