"International school teachers know that “all teachers are language teachers” and must embed explicit language instruction into their context. But what does that exactly look like?


Language targets are a keystone element of nurturing the needs of multilingual students learning a new language. Language targets focus on vocabulary, grammar, and discourse needed to be successful in grade level expectations."

Beth Puma is currently an Instructional Coach at The American School in Japan. She has worked with linguistically diverse students in New York City and Tucson public schools, and most recently in China and Japan.


She has a broad range of experience as a classroom teacher, EAL specialist, curriculum coordinator, and coach in the K-12 setting. She specializes in working with teachers in unit and lesson planning that strategically meets multilingual students’ needs through standards aligned-instruction, differentiation, and scaffolding.
