Instructional Models and Strategies for Teaching English Language Learners
Developed by Center on Instruction

This publication offers educators and policy-makers guidance on research-based strategies that have been effective in instructing English Language learners (ELLs). Regardless of the model that school districts select, teachers--especially those who have not been trained to work with ELLs--need help to determine the most effective strategies to accelerate student learning and maximize instructional time. This document outlines key contextual factors that decision-makers should take into account when making instructional choices for ELLs, provides a brief overview of bilingual and English-only instructional models, and considers the influence of the language of instruction on academic outcomes for ELLs.
The Center on Instruction held a webinar July 28, 2010, as an orientation to this document. The archived WebEx file and the PowerPoint presentation can be accessed here.
