Description

Currently, there are around five million ELLs in the public school system of the United States. To be successful, many English Language Learners (ELLs) may need additional opportunities for instruction outside of the regular school day. After observing at El Puente, an after-school program for ELLs, I wanted to learn more about what makes the programs effective for ELLs. I conducted a review of the research literature to determine which strategies make the after-school programs for ELLs successful. In order to effectively support ELLs after-school, the programs need to utilize the student’s primary language, engage the parents/families in the process, have the instructors collaborate, allow time to practice what is taught, conduct the after-school session at a school but in an informal environment, and create unique ways of learning.
