Abstract

It happened to be Earth Day, and the kindergarten teacher led the students in an integrated lesson about the environment and recycling, all the while reinforcing concepts in physical and human geography. One child in the class, Roberto, had recently arrived from Puerto Rico and spoke no English. We were interested to see how this master teacher, Ivonne Blank, might make the content comprehensible to Roberto and enable him to contribute to the class’ learning. It turned out that we were about to observe a model lesson in ESOL instruction.
