Transcript: Marla Earnest: The way our classroom works in a day is we have a reading fluency that we do in every class. It's really nice that ELD learners get that extra time to work on their reading because many of them need it. So we start with 20 minutes of reading time. We have a couple programs that we use. We use Reading Plus; we use Lexia for our learners who are a little bit lower, and our newcomers use DuoLingo.

And I have one-on-one conversations with them so I'm not disrupting the reading of the whole room.
