May the Force Be With You”
Cindy Fryer, a first-year English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher, arrived at work for a faculty meeting. Her principal announced that the previous evening the school board voted to immediately require bilingual instruction for each child who is bilingual. As Cindy looked around the room, she realized that she was one of two ESL teachers and that there are more than 87 bilingual students in the school. How was she going to effectively implement the mandate with so many students? Cindy took her concerns to her principal.
