Middle School EL Program

  • two middle school girls smiling and holding hands Multilingual Learner students in middle school receive direct language support in ML classes that focus on building a student's academic vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing skills.  These classes are taught by certificated ML teachers.  Beginner and Advanced Beginner students are typically in ML classes for two or three periods a day, while Intermediate students are in ML classes one period a day.
     
    The rest of the day students are integrated into the regular math, science, social studies, and elective classes. Their progress in those classes is monitored by the ML teacher, and the math, science, social studies and elective class teachers receive support in working with ML students from the ML teachers.
