Increasing ELL Population Drives Learn English Development

Naperville, Illinois - October 25, 2010 - Education City, the leading elementary online teaching and learning resource, announces today the release of Learn English, and English Language Learning module designed to support the mainstream teacher and language specialist in teaching English and building student confidence.

The new module has been developed for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade ELLs ranging from beginning to intermediate. Focusing on language development and grade-level content instruction, the context has been designed for use by both the classroom teacher and the language specialist.

Learn English content is organized according to Education City's English Language proficiency standards and incorporates not only English Development, but also Math, Social Studies, Science and Reading and Writing. Activities are categorized into themes such as: My School, My Family, My Neighborhood, My Planet, Our Friends, and Our Living Things. All activities provide feedback and reinforcement for both correct and incorrect responses and are supported with teacher notes and interactive worksheet manipulatives. Learn English activities are compatible with Education City signature teacher features such as SuccessTracker, myCity, the Standards Map and Topic Filter.

 
“In elementary schools, supporting ELLs means teaching them English,” said Matthew Kwak, President. “It also means, building a child’s confidence and setting them on a path to independence and achievement. Our Learn English program helps teachers do just that.”
 
Students at Mary L. Welty Elementary School in Nogales, Arizona have had the opportunity to work on a pilot version of Learn English since mid-April. Principal Claudia Welden says that the school’s ELL students are making great progress with Learn English. “Learn English has been well-received because the program fulfills student expectations according to their necessities” Welden said. “Our students are making progress and their comments toward Learn English are positive and enthusiastic!”
 
The Learn English module is available for $375 for a one-year subscription. For more information please give us a call at 800.995.5410.
