I am the ESOL teacher at my high school. I have about 26 students. I see 15 of them twice a day, once for their language arts class and once for their support class (help for other classes and specifically working on the language development skills). However, the language arts classes are divided by scores on testing and the support classes are whatever fits their schedule best. I'm trying to decide how to do teams. Should I only group students with other students in their language arts classes? Should I only group students who only have me once with others in their class in the same situation?
Any guidance is appreciated!
