How the ELL Brain Learns
About 10% of public school students live in households where English is not the primary language. These English Language Learners (ELLs) typically become proficient in “social” English within 2-3 years but require several more years to become proficient in “academic” English. It is largely the latter that determines advancement in American society so bringing ELLs up to grade-level competence in academic English becomes a top priority.
This course provides understanding of the problems faced by ELLs and offers strategies for addressing them in contexts devoted to teaching English across all required subjects. Brain mechanisms for language learning are presented and referenced throughout the text for a broad understanding of how ELLs acquire language. Methods used for teaching ELLs are identified and highlighted with the educator in mind. Upon completion of this course, students will understand the amount of effort ELLs exert in order to master course content, and which teaching methods should be applied to meet their specific needs.
