Online English Language Development (ELD Level 2)
Bridging the Gap for More Advanced English Learners
Intermediate and Long-Term English Learners (LTELs) in the secondary grades often have strengths in some language areas — such as speaking or reading — but weaknesses in others. As a result, learners may experience stalled progress in their path to re-designation, along with diminished academic achievement. Many ELs also struggle in their academic subjects due to a lack of subject-specific vocabulary.
The Language Tree Online ELD Level 2 program uses a cross-curricular approach to solidify language skills while strengthening academic language. This rigorous curriculum helps develop critical language skills needed to successfully “unpack” content in Math, Sciences, and Social Studies.
Multi-sensory strategies, such as videos, interactive quizzes, and self-recording exercises, serve to engage teen learners.
English Language Development for Intermediate and Long-Term English Learners
ELD Level 2 is a comprehensive, standards-based program for students with two or more years of ELD study. It allows ELD/ESOL educators to:
- Identify language gaps tied to the latest ELD standards, including WIDA 2020, CA 2012, TEKs, and NYS ENL, to better inform lesson planning
- Address identified skill gaps and improve English language proficiency across all four domains
- Deliver culturally-relevant instruction with the appropriate level of scaffolding to motivate and challenge multilingual learners
- Prepare their students for statewide assessments required for re-designation and entry into ELA core classes
The four modules in ELD Level 2 can also be used anywhere – at home for remote learning or in the classroom. Downloadable instructional routines for synchronous teaching and student practice assignments make this a truly hybrid solution.
