In-class reading, independent reading, and translations for ESL students
Several students in my HR spoke little to no English.
Finding several worksheets and alternative sources in Spanish but this was time consuming. I would also try and use google translate to translate topics, but this is not always the most accurate translation.
It has greatly helped my ESL students understand the concepts I am trying to teach as well as teaching my other students how to critically think.
I use Actively Learn to introduce a topic. I normally assign science content articles targeted for middle school audiences.
The translate feature is an amazing feature! It can also read passages aloud to kids who normally receive read-aloud services.
