Implementation Evaluation of the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program in Elementary Schools

Description:

This evaluation centered on examining instructional practices, understanding implementation practices, identifying challenges to implementation at the elementary level, and highlighting areas for improvement.

Recommendations:

  • Provide additional professional development opportunities on differentiation for ESOL and classroom teachers.
  • Reevaluate and clarify the focus on academic vocabulary in the ESOL curriculum and ensure that academic vocabulary development occurs throughout the ESOL curriculum.
  • Provide schools with guidance on best practices for scheduling ESOL instruction when using the pull-out model.
