What does a classroom of excellence look like? We have collected promising practices in ESL literacy, based on what the research supports, what works for instructors, and most importantly, what proves to be effective for ESL literacy learners. These promising practices are recommendations to instructors, program coordinators and all other stakeholders in ESL literacy.
After reveiwing the promising practices, complete the checklist to:
reflect on instructional practices
reflect on the conditions recommended for effective ESL literacy instruction
identify areas of strength and areas for improvement, and to be concrete about these areas
identify strategies for growth, improvement or change in ESL literacy classrooms, in order to align with the promising practices
