E.L. Achieve is built on a strong belief in the capacity of public education. As relentless advocates for the educational rights of English learners, we are committed to supporting districts in meeting the needs of their communities.
Our approach is rooted in multiple areas of educational theory, research, and practice, including effective literacy and content instruction, second language pedagogy and the science of implementation.
Our Work In Action
We collaborate with school system leaders, site principals, and classroom teachers in gaining the knowledge, skills, and tools to be solidly prepared for the work of ensuring sustainable English learner academic achievement.
E.L. Achieve works with school systems to ensure English learners receive explicit language instruction through our two related, but distinct programs: Systematic ELD (dedicated ELD) and Constructing Meaning (integrated ELD).
Here’s what our partners have to say about our services:
Systematic ELD is my roadmap to help me help my students and guide my teachers to make all successful and ready for all possibilities.
I was and continue to be transformed. Every institute, seminar, training I attend lifts me up even higher. I never want to really retire.
I feel like I say this every year, but this was the best symposium so far. Loved all of my sessions so much! You guys are awesome.
Systematic ELD has impacted my practice by providing a framework of pedagogy that supports language development in an authentic way. SysELD takes the mystery out of teaching language.
My teacher brain went into overdrive with the new methods and tools laid out before me in my Constructing Meaning handbook. Instead of my efforts to piece lessons together in well-intentioned but haphazard ways, here was a roadmap – grounded in research – providing a coordinated and effective approach to instruction.
