Teaching ELL students can be both challenging and rewarding all mixed into one class period. I can remember my 6th period ELL students started rapping a song by Migos entitled Bad and Boujee. They were really into saying all the words: “Raindrops, drop tops (drop top), Smokin’ on cookie in the hotbox (cookie).” I just sat back amazed and started laughing. After they were done I asked them “what the lyrics meant?” They all had no clue. At that moment it dawned on me that they “knew” the words only because of the rhythm. That changed how I started teaching my class. In order for my students to learn and retain the information I added more rhythm into my classes. Our students need us to see their likes and try to incorporate that into our lessons. How can you add student likes into your lessons?
