Truly Individualized Instruction

We recognize multilingual learners possess varying degrees of proficiency due to previous schooling experiences. SIFE students may have no transferable skills whereas long-term English learners may just need to break through in a few areas. Our comprehensive ELD program starts with an in-depth formative assessment based on the latest ELD standards. This allows educators to pinpoint the exact language skills and functions where each student needs more support. Our connected lessons and instructional routines serve to effectively address these identified language skill gaps.

Engaging and Relevant to Pre-Teens and Teens

Multi-sensory approaches are proven to deepen understanding and retention. Therefore, we've embedded video, audio, and images throughout our online ELD curriculum. This helps English language learners of any proficiency level easily comprehend lessons and instructions. Furthermore, we combine video instruction with fun, interactive features such as quizzes, self-recording, and writing exercises. Finally, to ensure that the learning experience is engaging and relevant to teen learners, we present realistic peer-to-peer interactions both in and out of the classroom that they are likely to encounter.

Acculturation and Functional Vocabulary

The importance of acculturation should not be overlooked. Newcomers often face social and emotional hurdles due to a misunderstanding of school norms and expectations. This can make learning and integration difficult. We help newly-arrived students overcome the daunting aspect of entering the American school system by introducing school-related norms and practical tips. American School Culture in our Newcomers program combines cultural knowledge transfer with functional vocabulary lessons to help students smoothly transition into their new school environment.
