12 ways to help ESL and ELL students
The number of immigrant children in American schools is quite literally growing by the day. It's estimated that children of immigrants represent 25 percent of the K-12 population in the United States and that number has jumped dramatically in recent years. Between 1970 and 2000, the number of K-12 children who speak Spanish at home doubled from 3.5 to 7 million, while the number of children speaking Asian languages tripled from 0.5 to 1.5 million. These students will, almost certainly, struggle in English speaking classrooms. ExpertClick editors look at some important steps to take with ELL or ESL students in your classroom.
