We aim to provide you support through website guidance, a series of sample assignments that can be used with pre-service and in-service teachers, a collection of resources specific to your needs, as well as information through direct contact with the ESL Infusion team. Please choose one of the following options to explore the resources we have for you.

Highlights of the Site for Educational Psychology Instructors

Program Assessment and Planning for ESL/ELD students: This section contains Coehlo's checklists to help teachers create ESL friendly classrooms.

Teaching Ideas: This section consists of subject specific Lesson plans with adaptations for ESL students as well as resources in teaching math, science, social studies, etc. Instructors can send students there to do assignments involving lesson plans and teaching ideas.

 

Writing and Responding to Scenarios: This feature allows students to do assignments related to educational psychology by submitting scenarios and responding to other students' scenarios. It is also a good exercise to prepare for the Ontario Teacher Qualifying Test which involves responding to various classroom and school-based scenarios.
