Effective Language and Literacy Instruction for English Language Learners

This module is designed to help administrators, teacher leaders, and classroom teachers understand effective language and literacy practices designed to support English language learners (ELLs) in the classroom.   There are growing numbers of ELLs in elementary classrooms, and providing effective instruction based on the Common Core State Standards is vital to schools’ success.   We provide an overview of issues relating to ELLs in schools along with key strategies to build students’ language and literacy skills.
