I always call students by their names. I think this is important in creating an environment that is welcoming to all. I also like the strategy of going over and giving them one on one assistance. I have notice that EL students are likely to smile and nod just as is says in the article. I like the idea of inviting their culture into the classroom by letting them use their language some and bring in, to class, items that show their culture. Using visuals like pictures and symbols to show rule and procedures is a good idea too. The EL students that I currently have speak English pretty well, but I will use these when needed.
