Helping ELLs Quickly Develop Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency
Reading and language arts scores for English Language Learners (ELLs) have been flat for 13 years. With increasing numbers of ELLs in our schools and ESSA placing an emphasis on narrowing the achievement gap for this subgroup, it’s time for a different approach.

The program provides the English phonics training, intensive grammar and vocabulary practice, and oral speaking and reading reinforcement necessary to build both basic and academic English proficiency.
