English Language Learners & World Languages

  • The Blueprint for English Language Learners (ELLs) Success is a statewide framework of eight guiding principles for administrators, policy makers, and practitioners to prepare ELLs for success beginning in prekindergarten to lay the foundation for college and career readiness. The principles in “The Blueprint for English Language Learner Success” provide guidance, resources, and supports to districts, schools, and teachers to promote an understanding and appreciation of Bilingual Education, English as a Second Language, and Foreign Language Studies.

    The “Blueprint for English Language Learners Success” includes guidance on ensuring the academic and social needs of ELLs are addressed by educators and school leaders; engaging ELLs in standards-based instruction; involving parents and families of ELLs in the education of their children; supporting bilingual and English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers; leveraging ELLs' home languages and cultural assets; and monitoring ELLs' content knowledge and new and home language development to inform instruction.
