Lesson Study Meets Siop: Linking Two Successful Professional Development Models, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Audrey Cohan Ed.D. Feb 2018

Lesson Study Meets Siop: Linking Two Successful Professional Development Models, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Audrey Cohan Ed.D.

Andrea Honigsfeld

In response to recently identified research priorities by TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and AERA, the objective of this documentary account is to describe and evaluate a professional development project for in-service teachers working with diverse English Language Learners (ELLs). The purpose of our project was to merge two distinct professional development models for teachers who educate ELLs without prior training or certification. The “lesson study” approach, which began in Japan as a professional development movement was adapted and combined with the SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) Model. Findings from a combination of quantitative and qualitative ...


Immigrant Literature In The Secondary English Classroom: Rationale And Recommendations, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D., James L. Garfinkel Feb 2018

Immigrant Literature In The Secondary English Classroom: Rationale And Recommendations, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D., James L. Garfinkel

Andrea Honigsfeld

The immigrant experience has been woven into a tapestry of shared American existence for centuries. Since the number of recent immigrants and US-born English language learners in classrooms across the country has been increasing, the authors suggest a rationale and recommendations for integrating literature depicting the immigrant experience into secondary ELA lessons. The goal is to give all students opportunities to develop cross-cultural understanding though literary engagement.


High-Stakes Assessments And English Language Learners, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D. Feb 2018

High-Stakes Assessments And English Language Learners, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D.

n this position paper, the authors argue that high-stakes, standardized assessments place an enormous challenge both on learners for whom English is a Second Language and their teachers. Yet, based on a thorough review of the literature and their own recent research on standardized test preparation practices for English Language Learners, they also claim that employing culturally and linguistically responsive instructional strategies may lessen the stress associated with test-driven instruction and improve student learning outcomes as well

In the U.S., English Language Learners (ELLs) are now one in five (DiCerbo, 2006). Between 1994/1995 and 2004/2005, LEP (Limited English Proficient) students grew more than twice as fast as their English speaking counterparts (NCELA, nd). Most educators are likely to encounter children who do not speak English fluently, though the likelihood is much higher in certain regions of the country. A unique challenge for many of these teachers and administrators is working with ELLs who are struggling learners (Artiles & Ortiz, 2002; Baca & Cervantes, 2004).

Picture a high school class that has English language learners (ELLs) from diverse cultural backgrounds with varied academic abilities and language proficiency levels. Now imagine that this class is being taught by a team of two teachers: one content-area teacher (English) and one English as a Second Language (ESL) specialist. Both teachers work together successfully to provide individualized instruction and support their students' language acquisition and content learning. The students are interested and actively involved in the lessons and are making consistent progress in terms of acquiring language proficiency an content knowledge.


Differentiating Between Learning Disabilities And Typical Second Language Acquisition: A Case Study, Audrey Cohan Ed.D, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D. Feb 2018

Differentiating Between Learning Disabilities And Typical Second Language Acquisition: A Case Study, Audrey Cohan Ed.D, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D.

Andrea Honigsfeld

There is an increasing interest in how to differentiate between English language learners who experience language learning difficulties due to socio-cultural, academic, or affective factors and those who demonstrate true learning disabilities. This case study is representative of the difficulty many teachers and administrators face as they try to determine whether or not a child who is an English language learner--and in the United States for a relatively short period of time--requires a referral for special education services. Utilizing the "Pre-Referral Data Collection Tool to Identify English Language Learners Who May Require Special Education Evaluations", the authors recount the story ...


Co-Teaching: 201, How To Support Ells, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Maria Dove Ed.D. Feb 2018

Co-Teaching: 201, How To Support Ells, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Maria Dove Ed.D.

Andrea Honigsfeld

Many general education classroom teachers and English as a Second Language (ESL) specialists find themselves sharing classroom space as well as responsibilities for planning instruction, teaching, and assessing English Language Learners (ELLs). This service delivery model may be called pushin, team teaching, inclusion, or co-teaching for ESL. Emerging literature on collaborative teaching practices to support ELLs (Pardini 2006; Zehr 2006), and personal experiences as ESL co-teachers and professional developers, have led us to devise guidelines to jumpstart co-taught lessons.

The English language learner population on Long Island, New York, has been growing each year. As recently as 2010, over 28,000 Limited Language Proficient students (about 42% in New York State) have been enrolled in schools on Long Island (NYSED, 2010). Responding to the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students can be a challenge for general education teachers with little or no background in second language acquisitions, even if they genuinely wish to embrace ELLs and offer strong instructional supports.

Common Core, Common Language: Reforming Instructional Questioning, Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D., Audrey Cohan Ed.D. Jan 2018

Common Core, Common Language: Reforming Instructional Questioning, Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D., Audrey Cohan Ed.D.

Audrey Cohan

T he Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts and Literacy in JL History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects have necessitated reforms that include a shift in instructional strategies, including those related to questioning. Teachers must utilize questioning in the classroom that focuses on common language for curricular development and instructional purposes. Yet, the types of questions that teachers have learned in their respective teacher-preparation programs may not necessarily align with the CCSS, with different academic terms used in each content area. As a result, teachers may be confused by the various terms used to define questioning ...

From The Ground Up: Providing Support To Emergent Bilinguals To Distinguish Language Difference From Disability, Andrea Golloher, David Whitenack, Lisa A. Simpson, Donna Sacco Dec 2017

From The Ground Up: Providing Support To Emergent Bilinguals To Distinguish Language Difference From Disability, Andrea Golloher, David Whitenack, Lisa A. Simpson, Donna Sacco

Andrea Golloher

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) data reveal that students with disabilities who are emergent bilinguals (English language learners) have the lowest levels of profficiency in reading and mathematics among all student groups. We consider issues related to the instruction of emergent bilinguals, including those identified as having specific learning disabilities, using a Response to Intervention (RTI)/Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) model. In so doing, we argue that instructional practices consistent with a robust Tier 1 framework are beneficial to emergent bilinguals with and without learning disabilities while differentiating Tier 2 and 3 interventions may improve outcomes for emergent ...

Who’S Afraid Of Multilingual Education? Conversations With Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, Jim Cummins, Ajit Mohanty, And Stephen Bahry About The Iranian Context And Beyond, Amir Kalan Nov 2017

Who’S Afraid Of Multilingual Education? Conversations With Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, Jim Cummins, Ajit Mohanty, And Stephen Bahry About The Iranian Context And Beyond, Amir Kalan

Amir Kalan

More than 70 languages are spoken in contemporary Iran, yet all governmental correspondence and educational textbooks must be written in Farsi. To date, the Iranian mother tongue debate has remained far from the international scholarly exchanges of ideas about multilingual education. This book bridges that gap using interviews with four prominent academic experts in linguistic human rights, mother tongue education and bilingual and multilingual education. The author examines the arguments for rejecting multilingual education in Iran, and the four interviewees counter those arguments with evidence that mother tongue-based education has resulted in positive outcomes for the speakers of non-dominant language ...


Teaching Anglo-American Academic Writing And Intercultural Rhetoric: A Grounded Theory Study Of Practice In Ontario Secondary Schools, Amir Kalan Nov 2017

Teaching Anglo-American Academic Writing And Intercultural Rhetoric: A Grounded Theory Study Of Practice In Ontario Secondary Schools, Amir Kalan

Amir Kalan

This qualitative research project is a grounded theory study of the experiences of five EAL (English as an additional language) academic writing instructors with intercultural rhetoric. Following the academic conversation about contrastive/intercultural rhetoric, this investigation explores narratives of classroom practice in Ontario secondary schools in order to underline L2 writing activities that are sensitive to intercultural rhetoric. This paper includes explanations of the phenomenon of intercultural rhetoric as identified by the interviewed instructors and lists practical strategies employed by the participants. These strategies are organized in three categories: (1) strategies that use the potential of students’ first languages and ...

How are collections processed and presented in regards to race and ethnicity? What is not collected and why? Who gets to say what is worth collecting? Operating from three distinct but interlocking perspectives, we will discuss our experiences navigating collection development and collection development policies as a Black woman archivist, a White woman anti-racist public librarian, and a Black woman academic librarian. We will look at the ways in which Black women as collections professionals face invisibility, coded language, and increased mental and emotional labor while operating in a profession that is 85.2% White. We will offer practical strategies ...

(Im)Possible Identity: Autoethnographic (Re)Presentations, Seungho Moon, Chris Strople

Seungho Moon

In this paper, we examine experience, identity, and their intersections. Working from an autoethnographic positionality, we investigate the insufficiencies of language and the limitations of any given researcher with an intent to address multiple realities and their respective interpretations of meaning. Autoethnographic narratives with the use of visual, written, and multimedia representations further acknowledge the dilemmas of qualitative researchers when they cannot fully describe subjectivities in research. What is deemed to be valid research is often indicative of a theoretical framework that aggressively seeks to invalidate other perspectives and ways of knowing. Thus, we create research spaces by employing counter-narratives ...


The Arts Community Without Community: Imagining Aesthetic Curriculum For Active Citizenship, Seungho Moon Oct 2017

The Arts Community Without Community: Imagining Aesthetic Curriculum For Active Citizenship, Seungho Moon

Seungho Moon

This article is about teaching art-based inquiry and equity pedagogy. The author introduces an aesthetic-inspired afterschool curriculum in the urban context in the United States and theorizes the meaning of active citizenship and community. Conceptually framed by “community without community,” this article explicates the ways in which the ARtS children (Aesthetic, Reflexive thoughts, & Sharing) investigated the meanings of community through dance, poetry, and clay art. The author imagines and theorizes community that goes beyond emphasizing solidarity and a collective “we”-ness in the pursuit of social transformation. Rather, the author argues that “community without community” could be an important framework ...


Motivation, Comprehensibility, And Accentedness In L2 Spanish: Investigating Motivation As A Time-Varying Predictor Of Pronunciation Development, Charles Nagle Oct 2017

Motivation, Comprehensibility, And Accentedness In L2 Spanish: Investigating Motivation As A Time-Varying Predictor Of Pronunciation Development, Charles Nagle

Charles Nagle

This study examined relationships between language learning motivation and the longitudinal development of second language (L2) pronunciation. Twenty-six English-speaking learners of Spanish recorded a simplified picture description task five times over a yearlong period spanning their second, third, and fourth semesters of Spanish language instruction. Learners also completed a quantitative motivation survey based on the L2 Motivational Self System and an open-ended questionnaire on their language learning beliefs once per semester, yielding three measurements. Eighteen native Spanish listeners rated learners’ clips for comprehensibility and accentedness. Although mixed modeling of the motivation data revealed a slightly negative trajectory for motivational subcomponents ...


Toward A Cleaner Whiteness: New Racial Identities, David Ingram Sep 2017

Toward A Cleaner Whiteness: New Racial Identities, David Ingram

David Ingram

The article re-examines racial and ethnic identity within the context of pedagogical attempts to instill a positive white identity in white students who are conscious of the history of white racism and white privilege. The paper draws heavily from whiteness studies and developmental cognitive science in arguing (against Henry Giroux and Stuart Hall) that a positive notion of white identity, however postmodern its construction, is an oxymoron, since whiteness designates less a cultural/ethnic ethos and meaningful way of life than a pathological structure of privilege and narrowminded cognitive habitus.

Roundtable – Teaching Human Rights: Challenges And Best Practices, Shayna Plaut, Kristi Kenyon, Joel Pruce, William Simmons

Joel Pruce

Over the past 20 years, courses addressing human rights have grown dramatically at both the undergraduate and graduate levels worldwide. Many of these courses are housed in specific disciplines, focus on specific issues, and require practical experience in the form of internships/practicums. Amid this growth there is a need to reflect on teaching human rights including the challenges, fears, and best practices. Recognizing that education takes place inside and outside a classroom, this roundtable brings together scholars teaching human rights in a variety of settings to examine the current state of university human rights education. This includes a discussion ...

Using Interculturally Aware Teaching Methods (In Revisiting The Characteristics Of Effective Education), Steven K. Homer Sep 2017

Using Interculturally Aware Teaching Methods (In Revisiting The Characteristics Of Effective Education), Steven K. Homer

Steven Homer

Teaching interculturally was not addressed in BEST PRACTICES FOR LEGAL EDUCATION. Legal scholars have studied how legal pedagogy both reflects the values and approaches of dominant groups within legal academia (i.e., privileged white men), and also how these approaches to teaching can alienate students — such as women, students of color, and gender and sexually diverse students, among others — who do not share all of the dominant group’s traits. However, more research is required to help law teachers fully understand the extent to which the structures of legal education affect non-dominant groups and how legal education may be changed ...

The Binational English & Spanish Telecommunications Network, Armando A. Arias Jr. Aug 2017

The Binational English & Spanish Telecommunications Network, Armando A. Arias Jr.

Armando Arias, Ph.D.

BESTNET was established in the early 1980's, as an effort to link universities on both sides of the U.S.- Mexico border through microwave, satellite and cable television technologies. In the late 1980's BESTNET focused primarily on the development of asynchronous computer mediated learning and teaching in an internationally networked virtual environment. For the past six years (1990's) BESTNET has strengthened its binational ties and continued its "high tech" focus through the development of active or vibrant model technology which is assisting in the creation of an on-line binational university setting that is "borderless" (albeit, seamless to ...
