Small Group Approaches for English Language Learners (ELL)


Small Group Approaches for English Language Learners:
Small Group Approaches for English Language Learners is a four-year project that is studying the effectiveness of a comprehensive Spanish school readiness curriculum combined with small group instruction towards improving literacy, language, math and social skills for a local group of prekindergarten ELL children from low-income backgrounds. Houston Independent School District (HISD) pre-K classrooms with a bilingual teacher/aide structure are planning to participate in the study, which will include more than one thousand ELL children in all. The study is funded by the Institute of Educational Sciences (IES), a part of the U.S. Department of Education.
