EL Instructional Model

At every grade level, schools may have students with a wide range of English proficiency levels and academic experiences.  To address the complexity of these needs, RAS is using a collaborative approach to provide a coherent and cohesive learning experience for ELs to meet academic standards.  EL teachers teach language through content, collaborating with content teachers and addressing standards in a variety of ways to meet student needs. For more advanced levels of proficiency, students are co-taught to the extent possible.
