Case study of ESOL student
Harvey is a foreign exchange student from the Island of Haiti. At the beginning of the school year Harvey was not keeping up. The teacher thought it was because Harvey was just getting used to being in a new environment but now weeks later Harvey grades are falling. How does the teacher get Harvey to get accustomed to his new environment? And if these problems persist how can he change it?

Is there a possible language barrier that the teachers are unaware of? Moving from country to country can be very stressful and its easy for a student to fall behind, especially if their English skills arent that great. Is there another ESOL student in the school that Harvey could connect with? The student doesnt have to be from Haiti but knowing someone else that is in the same position as you can be comforting and help with confidence levels.
