I have always enjoyed Dan Meyer's TED talk: Math Class Needs a Makeover. His Three-Act Math Tasks offer an engaging way to work with English Language Learners.

Tyler DeWitt has similar thoughts about science: Hey science teachers -- make it fun.

While neither has discovered the magic formula for successfully teaching all learners, their alternative approaches to teaching are interesting to hear about and learn from.
