Teaching English as a Second Language


The purpose of this project is to supply teachers with curriculum for targeted advanced language learning skills, particularly in writing. It is also to acknowledge that despite the language status of the advanced student, language development should be seen more as a continuum and should continue well after a student is labeled ‘proficient.’

With careful consideration, both units include language lesson targeted for advanced language learners, acknowledge various perspective on a particular subject, are Common Core aligned, and allow for deep student reflection.
