Abstract or Summary
  • In this work sample, a student teacher implemented ESOL standards and strategies on a unit covering chemical compositions in a high school chemistry classroom. The ELD program at this high school has two types of ELD classes. ELD 1/2 classes have a grammar-based curriculum focused on the English Language, while ELD 3/4 sheltered instruction classes have a content-based curriculum that incorporates both content and language instruction. However, the ELD 3/4 classes are only available in the subjects of history and English, and so this teacher is taking the initiative to bring together content and language in a science class available to all students. Through formative and summative assessments, the teacher was able to determine that students made overall gains in both content and language. However, the overlap of content and language in assessment questions and the different lengths of the pre-assessment and post-assessment affected the overall analysis of the data. The work sample concludes with a reflection by the teacher on the strengths and weaknesses of the unit, the impact the unit had on future teaching, and specific changes needed for the unit.
