Whether you are an ESL teacher or homeroom teacher, you’re juggling a lot of things and are doing your best to support your ELL students. Sometimes the lines can get blurry when it comes to exactly what that support should look like.

Specifically, there seems to be a lot of confusion around what ELLs need and what is not really that beneficial to them. Some of your go-to strategies, even with the best of intentions, could actually be hindering their English language journey. For example, if you’re working with newcomers, you might immediately think that you have to translate everything into their native language. In reality, that’s not the case. While there are exceptions to this, we want students to be immersed in the language of their classroom.

If you’re feeling unsure as to what you should or should not be doing with your ELLs, I’m going to help clear things up. I’ll share 3 things to stop doing to support your English Language Learners, as well as what to do instead. These strategies will help your newcomers acclimate to life in your classroom, save you planning time, and increase student engagement.
