ourapproachE.L. Achieve consults with educational agencies to equip English learners for academic achievement. Our 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:

  • 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.
  • 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.

New Secondary ELD Units

Empowering Secondary Students:

Setting the stage for meaningful ELD

Many English learners at the secondary level see ELD as a sentence they must endure and an indication of academic failure. ELD must be reframed as intensive, accelerated, and short term. Our instruction needs to reflect a commitment to this reframing and clarify the purpose of dedicated language learning.
