Guided Reading with English Language Learners: An Emphasis in Vocabulary Instruction

dc.descriptionTeaching and Learning Department Capstone Projecten
dc.description.abstractThis project centers on guided reading instruction with English Language Learners (ELLs). The focus of the lessons is vocabulary, since it is important in the development of ELLs. There is a review of the available literature on the topic. The weeklong unit of the project centers on using the If You Give...Books by Laura Numeroff to enhance the vocabulary of ELLs. The premise is to introduce a new book each day, but also a predictable patterned book, which will allow ELLs to acquire new vocabulary yet increase their oral reading fluency. The closing book of the unit is Amy Krouse Rosenthal's Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons, which offers life lessons in the form of cookie vocabulary words. There is a paper, which introduces the author's rationale for the project while making connections to the literature and demonstrating professional knowledge. The author also reflects upon her coursework taken at Peabody College and experience with English Language Learners. Lastly, the author discusses implications for future reading specialists, teachers of English language learners and the field of education.en
