TEXAS: TEKS and TELPS
In Lockstep with TEKS and TELPS
The Language Tree Online leveled curricula are fully aligned with Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (TELPS) for English as a Second Language. Plus, we support critical TEKS reading and writing standards. Our hybrid programs go deep into granular ESL skills and functions as outlined by the standards to prepare students for the TELPAS and STAAR.
All four language domains — listening, speaking, reading, and writing — are well-covered with video instruction, audio support, self-recording, interactive activities, reading opportunities, and lots of writing practice.
Here are just a few examples of language skills and functions that are addressed by our lesson modules:

Leveled ESL Programs Specifically Designed for Secondary English Learners
Teenagers are not children, so instructional resources should reflect relevant aspects of teen culture and emotional development. Language Tree Online is the only program designed for multi-lingual learners in the secondary grades.
We offer two programs, with the appropriate degree of rigor and scaffolding commensurate with students’ proficiency levels.
We recognize English learner students have strengths and weaknesses in different proficiency areas. Therefore, our comprehensive combined Level 1 & Level 2 program gives educators the flexibility to assign relevant modules to students to support individualized instruction.
