Part 1 Discussion Post
Review all module content and consider its connection to your own teaching or learning experiences.Respond to the following prompt in an original post that is between 200 and 400 words:
Describe two instructional strategies that you have used or want to try using to support English Learners in their grammar, listening & speaking, or vocabulary development. The strategies may come from your own experience, research, the course materials, colleagues, or anywhere. The goal of this is to use the collective experience and expertise of the class to create a bank of strategies that will be of practical use to you. To that end, do your best to contribute new strategies rather than ones others have shared already.

- What was something you already knew or had learned but it was reinforced during the modules’ reading(s), tasks, and interactions? How do they relate to the course and SEI course frame work objectives?
- Write down a question or query you have concerning a topic(s) discussed or read during the week and consider how you might begin going about responding and/or answering it. How might this query relate to the course and SEI course frame work objectives?
