PLEASE REWRITE OR REWORD THE BELOW DISSCUSSION ANSWER BELOW.
Since there are over 100 different languages spoken in California Public Schools, in order to accommodate the English Language Learners I would take advantage of the Home Language Survey to determine if there is any languages other than English used at home. For students that do speak other languages, I would administer the California English Language Development Test to see which students are classified as Fluent English Proficient (FEP).
Those who are not FEP will be my classroom's English Learners. In order to accommodate these students, I would follow the program placement for English Learners which would place them in one of the following program options: Structured English Immersion, English Language Mainstream, or an alternative program such as two-way immersion. It is important to merge all students into one classroom regardless of the language that they speak; as educators we are all language teachers. It is pertinent to allow the children to hear the English language and not to separate them form the rest of the class. I will have one lesson plan for all students especially while teaching reading, language, and writing. All students are required to pass the state's standardized tests, so maintaining the common core curriculum with all children will be vital.
Allowing each child an opportunity to participate in class, using the English language is vital practice and will provide me the opportunity to continually assess each child's progress. Also, I will keep the lines of communication open with all parents. It will be important for the families to know how their child is doing, which areas need work, and where they are excelling. Repetition is the best form of practice in reading, writing, spelling, and speaking; as well as allowing students and parents to ask as many questions necessary to help them progress and become proficient English language speakers. Finally, I will need to continually assess and evaluate my English Learners to check on who is progressing and accurately demonstrating effective listening, reading, writing, and speaking abilities in the English Language.
