How can you apply knowledge of phonetics to help ESOL students?
If a students is struggling with a phomeme, I can tell and show the student where and how the phoneme is produced. I can understand a student's error in spelling by knowing where these sounds are produced. I would teach phoemic awareness skills, names and sounds of letters, phonics rules, sight words, they could produce writing (be aware of sounds, and how they connect to letters).
What types of activities can help ESL students monitor and improve their proficiency in English pronunciation?
Teacher read-alouds help improve proficiency in pronunciation. Attention to student writing and spelling mistakes helps teacher identify students' errors regarding proficiency in pronunciation. I would develop activies that teach language through academic content and organize curriculum around themes (Sustained Content Language Teaching).
Involve students with meaningful language.
What is Sustained Content Language Teaching?
