How Nonlinguistic Cues Effect Students 1 In the classroom, visual aids, gestures, kinesthetic activities and other non-linguistic cues are effective tools teachers can use. These tools not only benefit students who are English Language Learners, but also students who may learn differently and those with special learning needs. One of the keys to student engagement is to differentiate the lesson in a way that appeals to all students. Non-Linguistic cues, however, are a major tool in ensuring ELL students not only are engaged, but are able to understand the concepts being taught. Visual aids are some of the easiest ways for students to see and follow the concepts they are learning. Graphic organizers, visual time-lines, etc. can help students to understand the connections between things like sentence structure or series of events in a story or History lesson.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
