Elementary ENL Collaboration and Co-Teaching Success Story-Laura Stevens, ENL teacher, discusses her role in a co-teaching classroom, which is to write language objectives including language functions and forms, and to provide supports and language learning activities which assist ELLs and all students in successful learning.

They reflected on some of their biggest successes and share a few of their greatest learning experiences.
Making Grammar Relevant Again- Laura Stevens, ENL teacher, observes that if ENL teachers are to serve as models of English for ELLs, then they must know the types of language problems ELLs have and be able to address them.

Many Resources for Teaching English Learners - Edutopia offers many strategies from literacy instruction to arts and technology integration to use in  engaging English-language learners.). rom her students!
Effective Co-Teaching Means Putting Students First-  As an ESOL/ENL teacher co-teaching for the first time in a sixth grade classroom, Laura Stevens was not just intent on making a strong teacher-to-teacher connection, but also on getting all students in classroom on board with what she had to offer them. .
