WHAT IS A NEWCOMER?

Newcomer students are recent
 immigrants who have little or no
 English proficiency and who may
 have had limited formal education in
 their native countries.
DESCRIPTION OF THE (MENA)
NEWCOMER PROGRAM
The program is designed to serve middle
 school and high school students who are non-
 English proficient (NEP) and have no formal
 education or very limited formal education.
 Length in program will be individualized. The
 main determination will be the student’s native
 language literacy level when entering the
 program.

High School
School year 2011-2012
                                                 THE RIPPLE EFFECT
• By separating the newcomers from the level 1 student, both benefitted.
• The newcomers benefitted from the opportunity of learning in an environment with less stress.
Summer 2012- Some newcomer students participated in the summer Project Ready and Master
Math. Those who worked hard and applied themselves started the school year by skipping a level
of ESL in the high school.

School year 2012-2013- Almost all students who were in MENA in 2011-2012 moved to ESL 1.
Only one MENA student returned to MENA in 2012-2013. He started late the previous school year
and had formal education in native language only to the third grade.

ESL 1- Since many of the students in this class were in MENA last year, the class has been able to
cover more vocabulary and content. With the African refugees who are placed in this class
generally coming in with solid BICS, there is much more interaction in the classroom. This
interaction is improving the social interactions and relationships between the students coming from
such a variety of native countries.

ESL 2- Since these students had a stronger and more intensive ESL 1 the previous
year, I have been able to begin moving the ESL students to more of an English
acquisition/Language Arts direction.
 Overall, the MENA program has already made a difference in the academic lives
                                 of our ESL students.
THE RIPPLE EFFECT
Middle School
 •MENA students develop a sense of ownership
 •Provide individual instruction because of the small group
 •Lower affective filters – willingness to try new things
 •Ability to create community connections & provide opportunities for our
  newcomers
 •Ability to move non-MENA students at a faster rate
 •Parents use MENA as a resource for community needs
 •Newcomer families use the MENA as a resource for homework and help
  within the community
PROJECT READY
