Things I did relatively well my 2nd year…

* Cooperative learning activities

* Giving many opportunities for students to talk and share with one another. ESOL PD classes always mention the best way for ESOL students to progress in their language is for them to talk to their peers. Lisa Meyers says that, “The average student talks 35 seconds a day. The student who is talking, though, is growing denderites.”

* Spiral reviewing

* Circulating around the room during instruction
