The purpose of this project was·to draw together evidence of successful English as a Second Language programs and sheltered classrooms. With those examples, I composed a series of teacher inservice lessons. The lessons were designed to show teachers why sheltering techniques are essential in every classroom, what those strategies are, and how to incorporate them into their own classrooms.
