I was lost, I did not know how to teach them, and it was a bad feeling knowing that some of your students are not learning what you are teaching. If the school does not have an ELL teacher, the teachers need the training. Not only the

teachers but all staff members that are involved with the students. The main goal is to be able to facilitate language and literacy development. The main idea of the article was to make sure that the students are engaged in conversation and discussions daily. The discourse is one of the essential parts of every 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.
