EDSS 555: SDAIE Strategies
A successful SDAIE strategy that I have learned about is the implementation of graphic organizers to help students filter key information, and put events in sequential order. It gives an ELL student the opportunity to have a visual representation of facts and concepts. These tools are effective for fostering cognitive thinking and learning by putting information in concrete form. By implementing these tools students will feel less overwhelmed and be able to show relationships between concepts. One way I thought that I could incorporate this into my PE class is creating flow charts that show the sequence of critical elements for a certain skill. Also, students could create cluster maps that show branches of examples of healthy eating habits. If an ELL student has more difficulty producing written responses it would be perfectly okay for them to incorporate pictures as well.
