Welcome To Mrs. Turner's ELL Classroom!!
English Language Learning
The world is amazing and so are my students!
This school year will be amazing as we go on an adventure of learning. I want my students to LOVE learning. My students will become amazing readers, writers and thinkers. My students will learn so much from books, the Internet, each other and me. My students will be amazed at how much they have learned by the end of the year. My philosophy is to share our wonderful varied backgrounds to allow us to see the world in a new light. We will appreciate the knowledge we acquire as well as the life lessons we learn from each other.
The goal of the ELL program is to assist students in developing competence in all areas of English language acquisition. The content covered in ELL mirrors the content of the students’ grade level class instruction when possible. The academic content is the vehicle through which language is taught.
Listening: Learning to understand English spoken in a wide range of
social and academic contexts.
Speaking: Learning to speak English with increasing accuracy and
fluency, in order to convey meaning appropriate to a wide range of social and academic contexts.
Reading: Learning to read in English with increasing comprehension for a variety of purposes.
Writing: Learning to produce written English with increasing fluency and accuracy to convey meaning appropriately in a wide range of social and academic contexts.
Leaning concepts that result in knowledge and awareness of the history and culture of classmates, Virginia, and the Unites States.
