Effectively engaging selective mute ELL students in learning
The research question addressed is, what are the research-supported guidelines for effectively engaging selective mute ELL students in learning? The motivating factor for this capstone was the author's experience working with an ELL student who chose not to speak at school. The author wanted to create a resource guide for educators working with selective mute ELL students. The capstone presents four main areas of research: selective mutism, second language acquisition, factors affecting language learning, and best practice instructional strategies for elementary ELL students. The author synthesized research on these topics and created a research-supported resource guide that educators can use to effectively engage selective mute ELL students in learning.
