According to the National Center for Education Statistics, while ten percent of all public school students are ELLs, less than one percent of public school teachers are ESL instructors. This contrast makes it critical that all educators are informed about best-practices for supporting this growing population.
The Success for English Language Learners series is designed to provide specific information educators need to support non-native English speakers at any stage of language acquisition.
This download is for a single handout:
