Some English learner (EL) students take longer to achieve sufficient English proficiency to be reclassified as a fluent English speaker, or may never achieve reclassification. These long-term English learner students (LTELs) often lag behind their peers in academic achievement and college- and career-readiness.
In this webinar, hosted by the REL West English Learner Alliance, two EL education experts share promising strategies and practices to support LTEL students – and all EL students – in English writing and academic literacy.
The presenters encourage participants to consider the coordination of practices with a framework for building LTEL students’ academic language development and success.
