English Language Learners (ELL)

English language learners have the challenge of building both content mastery and English language proficiency.

Districts have the challenge of meeting their unique learning needs – often in the face of insufficient staff, poor-quality instructional materials, and other barriers.

What do ELL students need to succeed?

  • Context-rich instruction through a combination of responsive activities and on-demand supports
  • Rigorous, yet accessible material to help ELL students build content mastery and meet grade-level expectations.
  • Individualized learning to meet the diverse needs of English Language Learners who are at many different levels of proficiency
  • Teachers can use a variety of strategies and techniques to effectively work with ELL students to develop language, content, cognitive, and study skills
