Online English Language Development (ELD Level 2)

Module: Level 2 Foundational Literacy Skills

Many of our Long-Term English Learners (LTELs) have gaps in understanding advanced phonic structures such as spelling patterns as well as word knowledge of prefixes and suffixes. Developed specifically for English learners in the secondary grades, our standards-based Foundational Literacy module provides specialized instruction to support the development of advanced literacy skills.

The acquisition of critical literacy skills is accelerated through the application of proven instructional methodologies, such as sheltered instructional strategies. Multi-sensory content makes learning fun for students while also helping them better retain information.
