Here we see Sara Guller with her 4th grade ELL students in St. Louis, Missouri. She is encouraging them to think in their first language and draw a picture before they write. Their creative juices flow while they add details to their drawing and discuss facts that occurred. When they use their pictures to guide them while writing, students are able to enhance their text with adjectives and other precise language.
