Mrs. Penn- EL Collaborative Teacher
The goal of the EL Program is to provide new English-speaking students with the resources, opportunities, and support to enable them to become proficient in the English language in order for them to succeed in an academic setting. While many English Learner students learn to communicate socially in English quickly, most students take at least 5-10 years to develop age-appropriate academic language. Therefore, the main purpose of an EL program is to strengthen the students’ understanding and production of academic English.
We Are the World is an update that aims to create educator partnerships and better understanding about an English Learner's language acquisition, culture, and background to best serve EL's academic, language, and emotional needs.Sign up for We Are the World updates below:
