Essay about An Course, Movement And Health For The Child
Prior to attending this course, Movement and Health for the Child, I was aware that a general education teacher is responsible for differentiating instruction for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Language) student’s language needs.

The teacher’s goal should be to help the ESOL student become proficient in English as well as a success in the classroom.

A teacher should consider any culture implication that may affect an ESOL student’s education. A teacher should show respect to any culture difference between them and their ESOL student. Additionally, they can support all diverse cultures in their classroom by having a family wall (where students display pictures and a biography about their family) or a wall that displays a verity of flags. When a ESOL student feels welcomes and secure in a classroom, they are more likely to become proficient in English faster than if they feel isolated and misunderstood.
