Edison High School Nick Ruggieri AVID 10 th Grade ENES 3338 2/2/13 Reflection Throughout this course as well as my observations at Edison, I have come to have a better understanding of ELL’s in the classroom as well as how to incorporate new things that are both beneficial to native English speakers as well as non native English speakers.

This is one thing that I did not observe in my observation classroom enough, and, while it may have been hard for the teacher to do so since it is not a traditional classroom environment, I think addressing key vocabulary would have been beneficial to all in the classroom.

    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.
