Abstract
Current U.S. educational policies set high standards for students’ achievements, but reduce students’ opportunities to interact and thus learn effectively. Also, current focusing on standardized tests promotes teaching students to memorize facts and successfully take tests rather than developing students’ higher order thinking skills that turn the students into responsible decision makers. My study describes the results of the reflection process of a K- 12 ESL teacher Barbara whose case shows that a K-12 ESL teacher can work on achieving the existing educational standards without having a negative impact on ESL students.
