An EILP is a way to go away from the common way known as “ESOL accommodation”. The intention of the EILP is to give the teacher a sense of ownership thru the entire lesson. It helps the teacher includes all the students in the classroom, including special needs students. It also let the teacher know when there is and ELL student, which question to ask depending of the level of English Acquisition.

This syllabus will be use as an instructional direction to prevent isolating some students more than others. It creates a constant interaction between the different individuals in the classroom during the lesson. The EILP lesson plan will be the way of reflection about your own teaching and the students needs (responses). It will guide the implementation of each unit and transform it in a teachable moment.

The need of a well designed lesson plan may balance your class. Knowing that you as ESOL teachers have an important role to play in facilitating linguistic development (teaching in any subject area consequently needs to involve some focus on language). You need to include the use of varied forms of presentations and encourage students to represent their knowledge and understanding in a variety of ways in order to respond effectively to diversity within the student population. All of these steps need to be represented throughout the lesson, not just as the very end as a recommendation. We need to include ESOL/ELL students since the first time we start the lesson.
