English Language Development Services

  • Students work with a highly qualified ELD teacher. Schools accelerate the acquisition of academic language by providing a comprehensive support system, where they receive specialized, comprehensive English language instruction. The acquisition of English requires a collaborative effort between teachers and specialists, as well as professional development for all staff on how to deliver rigorous, grade-level content and provide language-rich, instruction for all students.
  • Elementary school English language learners typically receive 30 minutes of intensive English language development daily. Many ELD teachers provide this service thru a “pull-out” model. This means the students are pulled out of the general education setting for this intensive English instruction. The following skills are emphasized: social communication, academic vocabulary, grammar, reading strategies, writing skills, as well as the use of technology.
