Abstract:The teachers' approaches to working with their ELLs were much the same as their approaches to working with other children in their classes. The teachers were not able to differentiate between good teaching and effective practices for ELLs. Home language and culture were also not recognized as an important foundation for ELLs' learning. The study points to the need for teachers, and all other school staff, to have an educational background for working with ELLs.
