Teaching based on students’ strengths is a key to success!


The presenter of this session believes that there are no bad students. Students become “bad” if they lose interest or don’t understand. As an English Language Learners teacher, the presenter works with students with different cultural backgrounds and different levels of academic English proficiency. Some of these students are dual identified. These students are usually coming from a totally different environment and having a difficult adaptation period to the new school and to the new life in general. A lot of these students are struggling in their classes and end up failing. During this session, the presenter will share ideas on how to lead these students to success and show examples of students’ work.
