    Good luck on your interview. I have done push-in services for
    elementary grades for about three years. I plan lessons with
    the general education teacher and I am responsible for
    teaching the literature units to all students in the
    classroom. I use a lot of visuals when I teach to assist the
    ESL and special education students as well as incorporate my
    ESL students' cultures when I teach the literature units.
    Then I pull small groups of ESL students and help them to
    increase their oral, reading and writing skills. I have
    found that the ESOL strategies help all learners not just our
    ESOL students. I hope this helps you.
