Millions of students in U.S. schools are English Language Learners (ELL), and that number continues to grow. These students require specialized assistance to help them become proficient English speakers, and therefore improve their academic achievement and performance.
CORE offers targeted workshops to preK-12 educators, administrators and aides that focus on building English literacy acquisition and language development skills among ELL students. Educators will learn proven instructional practices for developing students’ oral language and building academic language and vocabulary.
CORE implementation experts also offer ongoing, site-based support to identify and place ELL students. From there, CORE experts mentor educators in implementing curricula, selecting instructional support materials, and mastering effective instruction techniques.
If you are considering an investment in ELL professional services, but aren’t sure of the need, CORE’s experts can evaluate your school’s current ELL support system. After completing a thorough review, which includes classroom audits, focus groups, surveys, and data collection, CORE experts will collaborate with you to determine next steps for improving instruction and academic achievement in your school or district.
