OurApproachGraphicOur organization was built on the premise that increasing English learner achievement requires a system-wide approach.

Along with strong pedagogy and purposeful leadership, English learners need opportunities for robust language learning.

Our research-based and federally compliant model illustrates how school systems can structure the day to ensure English learners receive explicit language instruction for these two related, but distinct, purposes:

  • Constructing Meaning – Explicit support for all students in acquiring the language needed to comprehend and express understanding of grade-level work. This also serves as integrated ELD.
  • Systematic ELD – Instruction in the English language as its own subject of study designed to grow students’ proficiency in English. This is also referred to as dedicated or designated ELD.

-  Internalizing a range of interaction routines to engage students, promote robust discussions, and give teachers opportunities to listen in on students' ideas and language needs.
