Instructional Programs for ELLS

Hi everyone, 

For the next few Wednesdays I am blogging about the different programs offered to second language learners.

Today let’s look at Structured English Immersion Programs.

According to the Oregon Department of Education – Office of Learning – Equity Unit, Sheltered Instruction Programs are described as:

The goal of this program is acquisition of English language skills so that the ELL student can succeed in an English-only mainstream classroom.  All instruction in an immersion strategy program is in English.  Teachers have specialized training in meeting the needs of ELL students, possessing either a bilingual education or ESOL teaching credential and / or training, and strong receptive skills in the students’ primary language.



There you have it!  Check back next Wednesday for –  ELD Programs!


Happy Teaching!
