Creating Intentional Communities to Support English Language Learners in the Classroom
Rance-Roney, Judith
English Journal, v97 n5 p17-22 May 2008
Judith Rance-Roney calls on teachers to form intentional learning communities within their classrooms. The Culture Share Club, initially conceived to provide scaffolding for ELL students to acquire English and pass the statewide test in English, legitimized student knowledge by benefitting all students as they prepared materials for lessons and invested in shared experiences and responsibilities for classroom learning.
