Online English Language Development (ELD Level 1)

Newcomers Face Special Challenges

English learners enter our classrooms with varying degrees of literacy. Some may not even be fully literate in their native language due to interrupted education. Newcomer students face the additional challenge of navigating an unfamiliar school environment and a new culture.

As an English learner teacher, you have your own set of challenges. Students can arrive at any time throughout the school year. How can you successfully integrate a continuous stream of new students and ensure the rest of your class stays on track?

The Language Tree Online Level 1 program can help make your life easier. Our program can be used for small-group tutorials, whole-class instruction, and independent learning. Everything you need for instruction, intervention, and practice is included.  Furthermore, our unique  American School Culture module transfers practical knowledge and cultural norms to help Newcomer students feel more confident and comfortable.

The stories are phenomenal because these are related to our ELD students' prior and future knowledge. These are very relevant to their daily lives.
