19) The following are the responses of 20 out of 29 students that took the
survey and answered the following question.
What are your thoughts about the Elementary Education BLE/ESL program?
What would you change about it?
So far I have enjoyed the program and feel like I've learned a lot. Sometimes I
wish the instructors would have collaborate more with due dates and
organization because the stress levels are usually extremely high one week
and then low the next. It'd be nice to have assignment due dates spread out a
bit more.
The only thing I would change about the program is more time between
classes or a lunch break. Only having 15 mins between classes suck. I would
like to be able to eat lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I love the program but the scheduling is what's killing me--It's hard to learn
when the schedule is this crammed and some of the work I feel is not
necessary but other than that it is a good program and I have learned a lot!
Level of stress.
I really enjoy the BLE/ESL program for the rigorous types of content that is
taught, and our experience with our internships. I would only change the
scheduling system, to allow more time between classes.
I love it so far but some of the classes that we are currently taking are to hectic
as in the schedule.
It is a great program. I would change it for our cohort to have a lunch time
because days are very long
I think the improvements not only have to be made with our specific cohort
but with all Elementary Ed majors. I think we should be exposed to more
model lesson plans and perhaps watch lessons made by previous students in
the cohort. It would be beneficial to have access to a pool of lesson plans made
in cooperation with our cohort and previous cohorts to get more ideas on
lesson planning. I think lesson planning is one of the things our cohort needs
the most help with. It's not really help with the template itself but actually
developing lessons and working with activities that fit standards. I would love
if we also had a history/social studies content class that was in person that
replaced GCU 113&114 that actually taught content. I think the teachers
college expects us to come in with this knowledge without even knowing if ore
service teachers are proficient themselves to be teaching content they are not
too familiar with. I would also say adding more science content classes that
can be used to teach teachers science lessons aside from SCN 400. Lastly, I
would recommend more training on the actual certification tests to become a
teacher. I would recommend some study sessions or having pre tests and
study guides given at the ends of each semester that has content needed for

the test. This will then prepare us for the real deal in order to be effective
teachers!
I think its a great program and has a good focus on how to treat and work with
ELL's. I just think we need more representation--Not enough people know
about the program and often times when I describe my major, many people
dont even know what ESL means! Given that a lot of us reside in or from
Arizona or California, and the huge immigrant population in both states,
people should know about BLE/ESL teachers and their impact in the education
world. I also think we need to have at least a little control over how our
schedule is made.
I don't like that we have to changed internships between term 5 and 6 because
once we got comfortable in our placements and got to know the students it
was already time to say goodbye.
Also, the schedule is really dense. It would be nice to have some more time
between classes to eat and take a break.
I am exited to move on to the reading practicum and learn more about
strategies used in ESL classrooms. I was unable to experience an ESL
classroom this semester but I hope to do so next semester.
I love the BLE/ESL program because I feel like our cohort is working towards
the same goal of helping students who English is not their first language. I
enjoy the courses and most of my professors. But the program could be
improved by having more professors that can relate to our program.
I like the program. I was unaware that it was an accelerated program at first
so I was not prepared for it since I had been away from school for so long. If I
could change anything about it I would require the math class to be taken
during the summer because it does not require that we intern at the same
time. Also, I wish that the BLE 396 class was more fast paced at the beginning
because I feel like I was kind of guessing about how to do my lesson at the end.
I like the BLE/ESL program however, I wished we were required to implement
more of what we learned in our internship.
The cohort and professors work hard to make the program one of the best. I
think more work in the field would be more beneficial for us. Our content
math class MTE 301 was below the level that I am used to and I knew all of the
concepts taught. In the future it may be better for some students to be able to
pass out of content classes that they do not need. That being said I know it
might be hard since most cohort classes are in a block. Workload is fine.
Auriane Koster's SCN 400 class was one of the most organized and thoughtful
classes I have ever taken. It should become a model for how all classes are
taught at Arizona State University.
I think that the BLE/ESL program is a great choice for Elementary Ed majors.
There are only a few things that I would change about the program. One would
be in adding a break in between the classes. There was very little time
between classes in a day to even eat lunch or dinner. Another would be in
placing students in classrooms with ELLs. I was placed in a mainstream
classroom and felt that I would feel more prepared in teaching ELLs if I had

been placed in a classroom with them.
- Better professor lectures
- Less busy-work assignments, more hands-on work
- Choose own IMT
- Different schedules
I like the program and I'm shocked it’s not bigger than what it is right now.

I would change the signature assignments for EDP 311, they are repetitive & I
didn't learn new information.
