Abstract/Description

With the number of English Language Learners who are in elementary school classes the problem of communication and involvement of these students is beginning to be clear. However, if we provide our educators with the proper preparation and strategies with how to talk and effectively teach ELLs, we will see this issue slowly decrease. By adjusting and encouraging more educators to attend seminars to learn strategies to properly assist ELLs, the change in the classroom will begin to happen more naturally. My research question confronted the issue of not preparing our teachers well enough to help these students be as successful as they can be. With this research it was evident that the change way we prep and teach ELD in the classroom needs to be changed.

The purpose of this study is to discover the changes that need to be made in order to prepare teachers to teach ELLs and the methods that are shown to be successful in the classroom. Four elementary school teachers completed this research from all different areas in California and from different economic areas. This study took a deeper look into how our teachers are being prepped prior to their first year of teaching and if that preparation is successful. Not only do we need to prepare our teachers prior to them being a full teacher, but also ensure that they are getting the opportunities to learn new strategies on teaching ELLs.
