How do I use this?
While is was in my ESOL practicum I ran across students that the teacher said knew how to use the resources she offered in her class, like the translation dictionary, and vocabulary journals, but they had no idea. I did not realize this till I was trying to teach a lesson that involved both. I stopped my lesson and began to go over how to use both resources. Should I let the teacher know?

Of course! The teacher should be told what the students were saying. This way she can either remind the student how use the resources or let you know that the child is lying and wanting attention. Either way, it is ultimately it is his/her classroom, so they should be aware of the situation.

Yes! Definitely let the teacher know. If the students knew how to properly use their resources than it will make her job of teaching them a lot easier and they will learn more.

Heck yes! Like is she even teaching? Smh, make sure the kids know how to use the resources you've given them.

Most certainly. Often times in ESOL classes, depending on what stage the students are in, they will not tell you that they are having difficulty. The will say they understand or simply just smile. The solution to this problem could be as simple as a mini-lesson on how to use the resources given to them.

Absolutely. A sign of being a good educator is reflection upon what you are teaching. The teacher may think that the students are getting what she is teaching and how she is teaching it. She cannot fix what she does not know is broken.

I would definitely let the teacher know. As a teacher of four years, I still remember my practicum experiences. I remember the feeling of not wanting to be disrespectful to my site teacher or feel as though I was stepping on any toes. However, as a classroom teacher (with ESOL students), if a student of mine did not understand how to do something or how to use a resource, I would absolutely want to know. All too often, students feel embarrassed if they do not know how to do something that they assume everyone else knows how to do. I also remember that the students in the class liked to pretend that the didn't know how to complete the assignment because they wanted a chance to talk to me (the new person in the room). No matter which one of these is the case, the classroom teacher absolutely needs to know!

Yes!! Sometimes it feels like regular actions like using the dictionary or vocab journals are a given. However, if they are in ESOL some basic skills are taught. This will allow the teacher to make adjustments and maybe reiterate how to use those resources.
