Buddy System

I think the ideal of a buddy system is amazing. It is beneficial to both students. An english student can learn another L2 and the ELL can work on their skills in a comfortable way. If more schools would impliment such a program, I can only imagine the possibilities for students. In the classroom, I...

I agree with the notion. I think any way these subgroups can get the attention they deserve is great. If they are being monitored for the 3 subsequent years, then there is hope that they will get extra help if necessary. If these students are just put in mainstream without monitoring their progress,...

Civil Right

I think evry child in America, whether born here or in another country should have access to education. I think teaching NNS in an Englsh only classroom is still robbing them of education. Until a child had proven to be proficient in English, opted out or the teachers see fit, children when possible...
