In this podcast, my friend and colleague describes teaching reading in a 9th/10th grade class in an unexpected way (it may raise eyebrows at first) with students new to English. In the second portion she describes her experience alongside a student who did not share a common language with other students in the class, and who was new to reading.
We refer to this varied group of students as English Language Learners (ELLs) since it is still the most common term, but other terms are multilingual learners, emergent bilinguals and emergent multilinguals. Regardless of the term, these students are too often defined but what they don't yet know (English), rather than what they do and Katie describes here what it was like to lead her class by discovering and building on the latter.
