Up SPECIAL STUDENTS SERVICES The Elementary School Afternoon Activities Program provides a balanced co-curricular program that emphasizes the developmental growth of the physical, emotional and social skills of all students enrolled at ISM. The program gives students the opportunity to participate and progress in fun activities in a safe and supervised environment. The activities teachers are committed to keeping students engaged in and excited about the learning process. Most activities are held from 2:00-3:00 p.m. The program is open to al students in Grades 1-5. Some classes are divided according to grade level. Instruction is offered in areas such as: arts and crafts, hobbies, languages, dance, and sporting activities. At the beginning of each trimester, a registration packet is sent home to the parents. For further information, please consult the Elementary Activities Coordinator through the Activities Office. English as a Second Language (ESL) is offered to students whose first language is other than English and whose English language competency falls below grade level. Its main objective is to prepare students with limited English proficiency for mainstream classes by providing them with the cognitive and language competencies necessary in those classes. In addition, the program aims to provide instruction and preparation for real-life social communication. ESL support takes place both in the classroom and by small group withdrawal with ESL teachers. Class teachers allow for the ESL needs of students in their planning. English is the second or even third language of many of our children.

He also went on to state that, Our greatest chance of preventing reading failure among our children is when they are young and in the primary grades. Reading, Comprehension, and Writing weave together to produce a truly literate individual. I propose that setting up a computer lab for writing and publication across the curriculum would create an environment that would immerse students in the area of language arts through the use of computers. The end result would be literacy through the use of technology. Motivation is one of the key factors in getting students to learn. With the addition of technology of the 21st century (scanner, digital camera, and Internet) in the classroom, students will experience the writing, illustrating, and publishing of literature through an exciting and hands-on project. Project Goals The students will create a web page for our classroom that other schools in Utah and across the country will be able to visit and view their published work.

THIS DIGEST WAS CREATED BY ERIC, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC The presence of limited-English-proficient (LEP) students in special education settings has raised a number of questions about the special needs of these students and about effective ways to meet these needs. Just as special education students require specialized instructional programming to account for identified disabilities, mainstream LEP students require tailored educational services that account for their second language status. It is, therefore, reasonable to posit that exceptional LEP students require highly specialized programs formulated on a well-articulated, integrated knowledge base from special education and bilingual/ESL education. SPECIFIC NEEDS OF SPECIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS Special Education is instruction designed for students who require some degree of modification in their educational programs because of intellectual, emotional, sensory, or physical impairments (Glass, Christiansen and Christiansen, 1982). Modifications may include special curricular materials, specialized teaching strategies or behavior management techniques, and specially-designed equipment or facilities. Students with mild disabilities can succeed with modifications in mainstream classrooms. Other students whose disabilities range from moderate to severe in nature require placement in special settings. All special students, regardless of the type or degree of disability, share certain rights and needs, including:

One looming questions may be on their minds: How do we fit everything in with less time? How do we determine what is essential? There are no magical formulas to add extra hours into the day. There are, however, some tried-and-true suggestions that may calm ESL teachers nerves and help them refocus at the mid-year with higher aims that will inspire their students to study more. First, ESL teachers should be familiar with the curriculum guidelines, as well as, State and Federal educational goals. These objectives are paramount in organizing lessons, field trips, independent study, and end of the year evaluations. Review each point, carefully. Determine what is essential to daily plans, and what can be saved for freer times, such as days before a national holidays. After ESL teachers have studied the curriculum, then they should establish which skill they want their students to master after one year of learning. If an ESL teacher believes that speaking English is the most valuable skill, than for each lesson reinforce the importance of speaking through activities and materials. If another teacher thinks that reading and writing is the essential skill, plan the lessons accordingly to those objectives.

Always motivated, though frequently frustrated, these adult learners present school districts with unique challenges and exciting opportunities. Do your adult ESL programs measure up? Included: Online activities for review, reinforcement, practice, or drill According to figures compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau , almost 80 percent of the 26.4 million immigrants living in the United States are older than 18. The National Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education (NCLE) reports that in 1998, 2 million adults and out-of-school youths enrolled in U.S. Department of Education-funded ESL programs. The sheer numbers of those adult ESL students demonstrate that English-language programs cannot stop at the doors of the high school but must be included in district-run continuing education programs. Is your district able to meet the challenges these students present? Immigrants who attend ESL or EFL classes in continuing education programs are usually highly motivated and willing to work hard to learn the language of their new country, but they face a number of obstacles.

EMAIL this page to a friend With Teaching Grammar in Context , thousands of teachers discovered why students achieve better results when they learn grammar during the process of writing. In Lessons to Share , Connie Weaver's promised sequel, she focuses on the practical, offering valuable "lessons" from educators at all levels. The first section of the book addresses the learning and teaching of grammar, setting the stage for subsequent sections. The purpose behind the article on how language is learned is to help readers understand that babies and preschoolers acquire the grammar of their language without direct instruction and that language continues to develop indirectly during children's school years. Connie's article on teaching grammar in the context of writing articulates other aspects of the rationale that underlies this book: teaching grammar in the context of its use. The second and major section deals with teaching grammar through writing, across the grades. The authors address punctuation, parts of speech, effective word choice and syntax, and conferencing with students to teach revision and editing. The next section focuses on style, with emphasis on sentence composing, "image grammar," and "breaking the rules" for stylistic effect. There is also a discussion of the power of dialects and the dialects of power. The last section deals with teaching the English language and its grammar to ESL students in kindergarten through college. The section and book conclude with an article on using grammar checking computer software.

Extractions: ERIC Documents Several factors influence the identification of English language learners with special needs. Limited prior schooling, lack of proficiency in English, native language background, cultural expectations, and personal or family concerns can all influence a learners academic progress. It can be difficult to distinguish between a learning disability and learning problems caused by a variety of other factors. English language learners whose difficulties in school stem from these factors may be misidentified as having a learning disability. In other cases, English language learners who have a learning disability may not be properly identified on the assumption that their learning problems stem from linguistic and cultural differences. To further complicate matters, special needs may not have been identified in the learner's native language but may become evident as the student is learning English. Traditional identification instruments designed for English speakers may not be valid with English language learners. Identification of English language learners with special needs should include consideration of the following factors:

Extractions: In teaching graduate-level TESL methods courses at George Mason University and supervising student teachers, I have become more aware that teachers are working with growing numbers of culturally and linguistically diverse exceptional students. For many teachers, this has presented both challenges and opportunitiesófrustration and joy. To be successful with these students, teachers often need to ìrefocus their lensî when looking at and working with culturally and linguistically diverse students in todayís classrooms. "Refocusing the lens" implies that teachers can take a closer look at culturally and linguistically diverse learners, get to know them better and feel confident in accommodating these students through a variety of helpful strategies. Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Exceptional Students (CLiDES) is a term defined quite broadly. "Culturally and linguistically diverse" describes persons from a variety of cultural/racial/ethnic backgrounds for whom English is not a first language. For the purposes of this article the term "exceptional" will be used for abilities ranging from gifted to physical, emotional or learning disabilities. There are far too many teachers who do not share or know about their studentsí cultural or linguistic backgrounds and too few have had the professional preparation to work well with these students with special needs. Teachers working in culturally and linguistically diverse school settings have the challenge of determining whether a specific student behavior is the result of cultural differences or evidence of a learning or behavior problem. Teachers need to be especially sensitive to the possibility that what at first appears to be a learning or behavior problem may actually be a difference in the beliefs or customs of the student.
