Try this article on using buddies as a helpful strategy for your ESL/ELL students. Specific suggestions wbout what kind of buddy to choose and what buddy rsponsibilitites should be are very useful. You may want to share some portions of this article with the buddies themselves in secondary-level classes. Don't forget to also read TeachersFirst's Top Ten Tips for Working with ESL/ELL students.

Be sure to pass this site and information on to peers who are also working with ELL/ESL students. Continuing the strategy across the various classes a student is enrolled in can make it more effective and help ease the transition into an English-speaking school.
