ESOL Teacher and Staff Development
The ESOL teacher has to start staff development at the faculty meetings. She is nervous about completing this task and educating teachers on ESOL strategies. She has only been teaching 2 years. The meetings will occur after school. Some teachers are upset that they have to attend the meetings and listen to ESOL strategies. What are some ways the ESOL teacher can redeliver the information in an interesting way?

My first suggestion to the teacher would be to make the meeting interactive. Find apps and websites that are useful to both teachers and students. Many times teachers have to provide extra interventions for students and having interactive and easy ways to do this is helpful to teachers, which may keep them from having a bad attitude about the meeting. There are often times that scores from ESOL reports are not easily understood. Our ESOL teacher has held a training for staff that breaks down the meaning and importance of ACESSS scores. She provided useful information for and helpful tips for using these scores in the classroom. Providing teachers with ways to make teaching ESOL students easier and more successful may be helpful!

The teacher should first explain to the students the expectations, goals, and outcomes of the staff development. One way to grab the teachers attention would be to give them a scenario. Set a scene up for them as to what a ESOL student appears in a classroom. Use teachers as part of this acting out process.
