Last week I was very busy. This week, not so much.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I had three periods of 9th grade English and two periods of beginning ELD. As the 9th graders were more interesting (read: the ELD kids were very well behaved), I posted about them.
But there was one thing I wanted to mention about the ELD class.
ELD stands for English Language Development. These are classes for non-native speakers. A beginning ELD class contains students who are pretty much beginners in learning English. We spent a lot of time reading easy stuff.
Remember the boy who I thought was stalling while taking the CAHSEE? He was in this class.
So, okay, maybe I misjudged him. He was struggling with English. Although, I did have to keep my eye on him, as he was one of the students who easily got off-task. But perhaps he did need all the time he took on that test.
At least I didn't kick him out of testing. (I did hover.) He got all the time he wanted. (That makes me feel a little better.)
