A Free 15-Hour Course on Sheltered English Instruction
Developed by the SRI&ETTC Funded by the NJ Department of Education
Educating students who still are acquiring English proficiency can be complex in an age of high stakes evaluations and assessments as well as college and career-ready standards. English language learners (ELLs) are not monolithic in their educational background, cultural experiences, and ability to adapt to learning environments. However, through well-planned instruction, ELLs can attain challenging academic standards.
