AUDIO VS. MOVIE DIRECTIONSSome of your ELLs may be conversationally fluent in English but struggle with reading in this language. In addition to giving them written directions in English, you can provide an activity sheet or assignment that will link to a URL where they can hear the directions read aloud for them. You may decide to try this strategy if your students are stronger readers and you want them to practice their listening skills. Another option is to provide audio directions for students in their native language so that they can focus on the task at hand rather than struggle with following written directions.Source: ARE JUST BEGINNINGWE NEED TO GO FROM FISHING TO FLYING@TheTechProfe53TIME TO GO EXPLORE :-), TACTICS, & TOOLS THAT SUPPORT ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERSGet The Preso H A N K Y O U !
