    Teachers can determine the program model and practices that best meet the needs of their students.

    Students have studied and described a second language learner in their community and identified the learner’s needs. Students have observed interactions in a classroom, while viewing the TELL case studies, about the various programs available. Students are now prepared to discuss the information gained from these activities with their peers. Students can reflect on and analyze those interactions and address the implications of those interactions on teaching practice.
