WestEd’s English Learner Services aims to improve instruction for English Learners by collaborating with districts, states, and federally funded centers to conduct research studies around various aspects of English Learner education, including:
- Implementation and outcomes of state and district policies
- Academic outcomes and trajectories for subgroups of Els such migratory students, newcomers, and long-term English Learners
- Potential impact of programs and interventions for English Learners
- Promising practices for supporting English Learners academically, socially, and emotionally
The findings of these studies help to describe and inform teacher practice and positively impact students’ educational experiences.
