LINDEN TEACHER BROADENS VIEW ON CHINA

Teaching English as a Second Language at Linden High School, which boasts a diverse population and an international baccalaureate program, has widened Eloy Delgado’s global perspective since he began his position there almost three years ago.

Delgado’s experience teaching in the Elite English Program at Kean University’s Wenzhou campus in China this summer broadened those horizons and will enrich the academic experience even further for his Linden High School students.

“I was attending a professional development conference when I ran into a former professor who asked me if I was interested in going to China,” said the Elizabeth resident, who previously had traveled only to the Dominican Republic and England.

“Things started happening rapidly,” said Delgado, who learned in June he had been selected to teach in the program. Designed to immerse and help improve the English skills of the Chinese students in a short period of time within a smallgroup setting of no more than 14 students per class, the Elite English Program requires students to learn vocabulary in context, as well as various cultural customs of the United States. Inviting students to focus on creative and critical thinking, Delgado also created authentic conversations for the students that were based on highinterest topics.

Core courses included effective writing, critical reading, listening comprehension, oral discourse, cultural literacy and vocabulary development.

Supplemental courses included pronunciation lab, “Watch & Learn” (English television shows), “Learning by Heart,” social etiquette and more. Kean University’s campus in Wenzhou has been constructed with an American-style design in order to offer Chinese students an authentic American experience set against the backdrop of Wenzhou’s mountainous region. “At Linden High School and teaching English as a Second Language, I have encountered so many different students from various backgrounds and ethnicities,” Delgado said. “And this was truly an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime experience for me.” Since he could not communicate in his students’ native Mandarin language, Delgado felt like the tables had turned and made him the student, he said. Soon, he was learning a new culture, a new way of life, and taking notes from those around him.

“Yet, this opportunity gave me such an appreciation for how different and how similar we really are,” he said.

As Linden High School prepares to open its doors for a new academic year, Delgado is enthusiastic about the lessons he will be able to impart to his ESL students based on his experiences in China.

He hopes to start more group conversations within the classroom about current and high-interest topics, and he believes his new-found appreciation for embracing new cultures and opportunities will spill over into his students’ academic experience.

Delgado has been appreciative of the support he has received from staff members at Linden High School since he embarked on his overseas teaching journey. “It really opened my eyes,” he said. “You never know what kind of opportunities will knock on your door.” Danny A. Robertozzi, Linden superintendent of schools, said, “As a district we are always happy when our teachers participate in extraordinary programs such as this.

“Eloy Delgado will learn many things from this experience that he will bring back to our classrooms and share with our students and his colleagues. It really is a wonderful opportunity for him and a benefit to our district.”

“You never know what kind of oppor tunities will knock on your door.”

Joseph E. Soehl Middle School had a great start to the 2014-2015 school year. This is a busy time for our incoming sixth grade students. They are familiarizing themselves with the school building, reading their schedule, opening locks and using their new computers for each class. The Soehl administration team welcomes our new sixth grade students to the building and is ready to assist them with the transition from elementary school to middle school.
