To serve English learners effectively, it is important to hear their voices. What do they think makes it easy or hard to learn English? And critically, what strategies do they think help? Watch and respond to a new video about English learners in Grades 3-8, as they answer these questions in focus groups and interviews, with commentary from the principal. The findings confirm other research data and can inform your instructional plans for English learners. Handouts provided.
