Question description

In chapter 3 of your textbook, you should have engaged in what we know about teaching. One of the most powerful ways to demonstrate your knowledge of these concepts is to apply them in a real life setting. Please read the case study below and answer the questions in this forum.

Overview 

Michael is a 15-year-old native Spanish-speaking student in a 9th grade ELL (English Language Learners) class of 23 students in a suburban California public school. He has been in the United States and attending school for the past three years, having emigrated from Mexico City with his parents and two younger siblings.

Problem

While Michael speaks English well – he is skilled in the face-to face conversational fluency known as BICS (Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills) - he struggles with reading and writing English. He manifests his frustration in a variety of ways including, but not limited to: routinely arriving late to class; failing to complete homework assignments; interrupting his teacher when she is explaining an upcoming assignment; refusing to participate in collaborative groups. Michael’s openly disruptive behavior is impacting other students in the class. Three Spanish-speaking students (two males and one female) have begun conversing across the classroom with Michael in Spanish.

In addition to two ELL classes, Ms. Watkins also teaches three sections of Advanced Placement English Language.The other ELL students in the class, each of whom is at a different level of English-language mastery.Sabrina, Michael’s 8 year old sister.Victor, Michael’s 11 year old brother.Contributing Factors
