Hi, welcome! Please share your video if possible, as we are a small group today :)

I would talk to the class about everyone's pronunciation. I maybe would use a personal example. I still remember elementary teachers pronouncing my last name incorrectly.
Ryan Wood
34:12
I would ask them to say their name. And write it down how they say it.
Debreen Oliva
34:43
I would want to ask them to write it phonetically, however that would be difficult for ELLs.
Ryan Wood
35:17
Yes.
Debreen Oliva
35:34
I also have a confusing first and last name so that’s a good idea you shared to relate to students.
Kelly Colantuoni
40:20
I have cousins who are Bosnian … one cousin is definitely stronger with English so I do sit them next to each other which helps.
Debreen Oliva
40:47
I’m not sure if I would ask them to translate but I might pair them up to work together.
Debreen Oliva
45:52
For that video I naturally just tuned out.
Jodea Sweeney
46:18
I would feel so left out. I am half deaf so I actually know how it feels sometimes to be on the outside of conversations.
Ryan Wood
46:41
Went to a Deaf Movie for class. It was early in the class and only know a little.
Debreen Oliva
47:51
In Italy we tried to purchase a mosquito repellent and could t explain but since it wasn’t very important it was fun.
Kelly Colantuoni
47:56
Class trip in high school to Italy, France, etc. Had our little translating booklet with us.

I teach middle school FACS.
Debreen Oliva

I teach FACS but don't currently teach culinary.

Family and Consumer Science (hmec)

I think most current materials try to include different cultures but some of our materials are dated. I like the idea of seeking tutorial videos that represent a variety of cultures.
Bonnie Ball
01:01:37
Sorry I was driving home. I teach the nursing assistant program. We do a cultural project to learn how to take care of patients of different cultures
Debreen Oliva
01:02:20
As for ice breakers, I think sharing a family tradition would be a good idea to incorporate each student's culture. I teach family living so this would work.
Kelly Colantuoni
01:07:20
I have not done this yet but I will try this.
Debreen Oliva
01:07:48
That may work for me with something like identifying sewing equipment.
Bonnie Ball
01:07:54
Yes, some of my students have shared the body parts in Spanish
Jodea Sweeney
01:08:23
I agree with Debreen for medical equipment
Kelly Colantuoni
01:09:35
Hindi (India) and Korean
Debreen Oliva
01:10:49
Sometimes pairing an ELL student with a good student is helpful. The student can model and repeat while I'm sometimes busy helping others.
Debreen Oliva
01:11:58
I use bell ringers. That may be a good time for vocab in English and their native language. Though I haven't done it.
Kelly Colantuoni
01:15:33
about 60
Debreen Oliva
01:15:38
That's a great idea but as you mentioned, that's a real challenge. I teach about 125 per marking period and receive 125 new students every quarter.
Ryan Wood
01:15:42
300 +
Bonnie Ball

Kelly Colantuoni

The Math word in another language - even if it just one a week or one a month on the wall
Debreen Oliva
01:17:48
I will apply more sharing about family culture from all students. And sharing the difficulties with my own name when I feel badly about asking a student to repeat the pronunciation of their name a few times.
