Planning for Content and Language Instruction
Planningfor Content and Language Instruction
TheNew York State (NYS) standards for different grades, especially the6-12 grades provide the standards for English as Second Languagelearners. The NYS specifies a list of quality books that tutors canuse in teaching the students focusing on reading, listening, writing,and speaking with the help of these quality books (Echevarria47). This paper recognizes the importance of critical analysis andevaluation, and the language for social interaction for secondlanguage learners in New York State. It develops a content thataddresses the two standards above that can be resourceful to thestudents in the subset.
Contentrequires keen reading between the lines to understand every step andline of the content (Maiorana 59). The tutor is responsible toinspire the class to approach the lesson from the following angles:
Indentify the topic of the lesson
Analyze the sources available on their accuracy
Rank the information according to their relevance
Construct the picture painted by the information read internally
Use graphs to determine the most relevant sources
Divide the sources to understand the sub-topics and relevance
Solve the problems arising or questions arising from the sources
Be able to visualize the content
Design a similar content (Aanderud and Angela 289)
Onthe other hand, using the language for social interaction, the tutorshall require the learners to:
Read the content and understand
Write a similar content that expresses their idea explicitly
Listen to the lesson and write notes later
Tell their story
Write a journal of the lesson
Write a persuasive essay
Prepare a debate, and
Write drafts for using key vocabularies from the lesson (Echevarría et al. 158).
