ELD, or English Language Development, is learning support for students who use languages other than English. This support is designed to help their development in reading, writing, listening, and speaking English. Students who are identified as English Language Learners receive 45 minutes of daily pull out instruction with peers at a similar language level by one of our ELD teachers, Mrs. Wilson or Ms. Huber.
Language is best learned in context rather than in isolation, so our ELD units of study are closely aligned with the content and themes that students are learning in their respective grade levels. ELD time is spent with a greater focus and intentionality around the language and vocabulary of the units of study, as we support students in developing the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills needed to be successful in their classrooms. We work with specific language structures in mind, and provide extensive visual supports and scaffolds to help scholars in their growth and confidence in using English both socially and academically.
We are excited to be working with our amazing Stukey scholars! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions!
