English Learner Language Programs by Mind Map: English Learner Language Programs

1. English Language Development (ELD) or ESL Pull-out: The goal is fluency in English. Students leave their mainstream classroom to spend part of the day receiving English as a Second Language, often focused on grammar, vocabulary, and communication skills, not academic content. There is typically no support for students’ native languages. Many schools provide ELD services for students that are migrating from other countries to the United States. Schools provided services that will allow students to communicate and function on a day to day bias with their peers and teachers. When students are pulled out, teachers work on the students’ fluency and understanding of the English language. Utilizing teaching practices such as physical involvement with language, use of multiple mediums to present information, opportunities to demonstrate language comprehension through physical expression, a low-stress environment for language performance, and large amount of interactions, will help the ELL student built his/her confidence to succeed. Each of these teaching practices also accommodate for all standards utilized when working with the ESL student population.

3. “Dual Language”: When called “dual language immersion,” usually it means it’s the same as two-way immersion or two-way bilingual. When called “dual language,” this may refer to students from one language group developing full literacy skills in two languages. Many students that are migrating from other countries are taught English as a second language, not making them completely stop utilizing their first language. In other cases, some schools teach other languages as a second language utilizing student’s ability to speak English and learn another language. For example, Washington Yu Ying , in Washington, DC is the first public school in Washington, DC, to offer Chinese language immersion. Yu Ying combines language immersion with the inquiry-based curricula of the International Baccalaureate Organization. Some successful teaching practices for the Dual Language Standards are Engage in joint productive activities to have the students realize the Dual Language Immersion common goals, Develop clarity and competency in dual languages and literacy across integrated curriculum and Design meaningful and challenging activities to foster higher order thinking skills to strengthen dual language and literacy development. Each of these practices will help support dual language in the classroom and have student fully enjoy and get a better understanding for the school-wide program.
