I learned hands on in an ESL classroom during my practicum. I have learned how to incorporate visuals for ELLs. The SIOP lesson plan helps me evaluate my lessons to ensure the best instruction. Some key courses I enjoyed are: Research in Education, Second Language Acquisition, Learning Behavior Disorders in Children, and Linguistic Analysis.
