The Latino Policy Institute released a report at the end of August indicating that RI has one of the worst Latino-White achievement gaps in the country. With significant ELL populations across our four core cities, it's important that we get ELL instruction right. What models and strategies are currently out there, how are they working, and what changes need to happen in order for these gaps to close?
For those of you who don't teach ELL's, please remember that good teaching is good teaching and many of the strategies that are used to reach our ELL's will help you with the work you do in any classroom, so be sure to join us Sunday night at 8 PM on #EdChatRI as we discuss what we need to do to better serve our ELL students.
