Introduction to EL Strategies for the Grade 2-3 Classroom

Who Are Our Kids?

Since second and third grade English learner students are still in the process of working toward Fluent English Proficiency, teachers will find that using a variety of strategies in their teaching will help to raise the level of comprehension and language competency in their students. The strategies that are outlined in this module are effective for teachers that have multiple levels of English learners in their classrooms. The lessons and classrooms that we will view in this module also have a mixture of English learners and English only students, making targeted support for English learners quite a challenge in this setting.
