"This course has given me a new outlook on my instruction of English language learners.  I will be using more scaffolding methods, advance organizers, questioning techniques, as well as many more of the instructional methods in this course.  This is an excellent course that really promotes thoughtful instruction with the ELL in mind and their continued success as the main focus."
