Succeeding With English Language Learners: Lessons Learned from the Great City Schools
Aída Walqui, Director of WestEd’s Quality Teaching for English Learners (QTEL), served on the research advisory committee for this new Council of the Great City Schools report, Succeeding With English Language Learners: Lessons Learned from the Great City Schools.
The study’s results suggest the following:
- Programming for these students has to be collaborative and it has to span the curriculum;
- Districts need to develop and communicate a clear vision and strategy for English language learners’ (ELL) instructional improvement, and work to provide schools with the tools, support, and oversight necessary to drive these reforms into the classroom; and
- ELLs need much more integration into district general educational programs.
