Briefly share a recent language or literacy lesson/activity or interaction that you shared with students in your classroom (or a lesson that a lead teacher implemented and you assisted). What was the goal of the activity, the items that were used, and the types of questions and teaching strategies that were used during the activity to support and engage student’s learning?
Take some time to consider and reflect on what you have learned from Session 1 & 2 (and from previous courses) and how this information can be applied to revise this lesson/activity/interaction plan to support a current or future DLL students in ways that are developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate. Here are some questions to consider: Would the goal of this activity remain the same? Would you use additional materials or teaching strategies? How would you draw on the strengths of DLL students’ full linguistic capacities? What types of questions would you add or modify? What information would you collect from families and/or students prior to the activity to integrate their funds of knowledge?
to review the funds of knowledge information from previous courses. What additional steps would you consider to support the language development of DLL students before, during, and/or after the lesson/activity/interaction?
Share in detail at least 4 revisions you would make to your original lesson/activity plan and explain how it would better support the language development of DLL students in ways that are developmentally, culturally, and/or linguistically appropriate. Refer to the information you have gained in Session 1 & 2 content (or previous courses) to explain your reasoning behind each revision
