LACOE CIS, MAS unit is pleased to offer a one-day session to district leaders as a follow-up to exploring another program model for their sites. Each year the number of Long Term English Learners (LTELs) in middle schools and high schools continue to grow and make up the largest group of English Learners in the United States. These students have been in school 5 or more years without reaching sufficient English proficiency to be reclassified and to have developed strong oral English language skills. However, some may have literacy in their primary language, reading and writing are still weak. Although, they may appear to have similar academic needs of native speakers of English, they are still in the process of acquiring the English language (i.e. syntax, grammar, structures and vocabulary).
This session will explore underlying causes of becoming an LTEL, current services for LTELs offered by districts, discuss research findings that promote academic achievement for this specific group and provide reflection for implications of a redesign at school sites.
