This is a qualitative case study of teachers’ perceptions of instructional methods and resources for vocabulary development of English as a New Language (ENL) students. Data were collected over a period of three weeks using semi-structured interviews. The focus of this study includes what instructional methods were being used for vocabulary development of ENL students in a general education classroom. Results suggested that a combination of implicit and explicit instruction should be used for vocabulary development of ENL students. In addition, ENL students should be exposed to vocabulary with print-based and technological-based resources. Data also suggested that educators need more professional development or trainings on providing impactful vocabulary instruction for ENL students.
