Program Description

 

Into English is a supplemental program for English Language Learners (ELL) at the elementary school level.† The program develops academic language through a variety of grade level appropriate, content-based, thematic units, which teachers integrate for 20 - 40 minutes daily.† Each lesson provides teachers with comprehensible components and multi-level teaching strategies to reach all levels of students, involving them in cooperative, participatory activities and enriching, content-based lessons.†

 

This ELL program gives students access to the core curriculum through:

 

         Content-based instruction that builds academic language proficiency.

 

         Multi-level teaching strategies for all language levels.

 

         Authentic, accessible literature.

 

         Consistent, easy-to-teach lesson plans.

 

         Assessment that monitors growth across proficiency levels.

 

         Special teaching guidance for meeting the needs of newcomers.

 

 

 

Evidence of Effectiveness

 

Jurupa Unified School District, Riverside, California

 

Since the 1998-99 school year, the Jurupa Unified School District in California adopted and gradually implemented Into English in K-6 classrooms.† Results of a pre- and post-test comparison show that ELL students made progress toward higher language proficiency levels as indicated in September through June (2000-01 school year) comparisons.† The following shows the effect of Into English on assisting students in meeting state curriculum standards:
