As the world increasingly becomes more global, teaching English Learners (ELs) has presented a challenge for many educators who are unprepared for this type of diversity within the classroom. The drastic achievement gap between ELs and English-speaking students demand more attention to addressing this issue. However, as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are being adapted in nearly every state, the demand for a focus on academic language development shows progressive improvement. My research focuses on the impact that the implementation of the CCSS is having on ELs in our country, particularly on academic language. I will also examine effective instructional strategies, environmental structures and the learning needs of ELs in relation to their academic accomplishments.
