To become a certified elementary and middle school teacher in Florida, the United States, every teacher candidate must complete ESOL teaching requirements in his or her major-related program, must take an ESOL foundation course in the curriculum. The presenter has taught an ESOL foundation course for years in a university located on the east coast of Florida. In addition to having multimedia presentations, adopting digital readings, and facilitating technology-supported discussion in instruction, the presenter has searched, evaluated, and selected videos online to enhance the instruction and support students’ learning.
