ELL Instructional Programs needed for ELL Teachers

  1. 1. ELL Instructional Approaches for Successful Students By Melissa Breda
  2. 2. English Language Learner Facts <ul><li>14 million students are ELL in the US </li></ul><ul><li>31% English speaking ELL’s drop-out of high school </li></ul><ul><li>51% Non-English speaking ELL’s drop out of high school </li></ul>
  3. 3. Student Dropout Rates
  4. 4. ELL Students Across the United States (U.S. Department of Education, NCELA, 2007) Funded by U.S. Department of Education
  5. 5. Someone has to teach these children! Funded by U.S. Department of Education
  6. 6. Someone has to reach these children! Funded by U.S. Department of Education
  7. 7. Untrained teachers may be a factor in ELL student drop out rates across the nation. <ul><li>Only a few states have passed laws for specific educational programs for ELL students. </li></ul><ul><li>(Texas is not one of them!) </li></ul><ul><li>Untrained teachers are teaching and making decisions about instructional programs for their ELL students. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The goal of this research is to discover what types of Instructional Programs are available for ELL teachers.
  9. 9. Why should this study be done? <ul><li>School districts are requiring all teachers to become ELL certified. </li></ul><ul><li>Training available = how to take the test </li></ul><ul><li>District belief is with more certified ELL teachers the lower the dropout rate. </li></ul><ul><li>Standard Instructional Program needs to be implemented throughout school district. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Different Teaching Approaches <ul><li>Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach (CALLA) </li></ul><ul><li>Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) </li></ul><ul><li>Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) </li></ul><ul><li>Bilingual Cooperative Integrated Reading and Composition (BCIRC) </li></ul>

  12. 12. Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) <ul><li>A framework that can bring together a school’s instructional program by organizing methods and techniques, and ensuring that effective practices are implemented - and can be quantified. </li></ul><ul><li>Click to learn more about SIOP </li></ul>
  13. 13. Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) <ul><li>This program allows for students to move forward with academic courses such as mathematics and science while at the same time learning English through the contextual clues provided by the course of study. </li></ul><ul><li>To learn more click here </li></ul>
  14. 14. Bilingual Cooperative Integrated Reading and Composition (BCIRC) <ul><li>This program was designed to help Spanish speaking students succeed in reading Spanish and then making a successful transition to English reading through cooperative learning groups. </li></ul><ul><li>To learn more click here </li></ul>
  15. 15. Conclusion <ul><li>Instruction needs to include phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension. </li></ul><ul><li>Extensive oral English development must be incorporated into successful literacy instruction. </li></ul><ul><li>School districts need a specific framework to create an effective ELL program district-wide. </li></ul>
