Free ELD Instructional Tools for Teachers
An online English language development program should not be used as a “sit and learn” app. For the best possible outcomes, teachers should incorporate active participation strategies while using Language Tree Online. This includes lots of oral practice, such as reading aloud and engaging in collaborative learning exercises. Writing practice is also important, so have students do quick writes, journaling, and note-taking in a physical notebook as they come across new concepts.
Even if you aren’t currently using our program, here are some free resources you can download or play to drive more student engagement in your classroom.
