1 ESOL Workshop By Pamela Lorenzo Educational Specialist in TESOL Includes ESOL Strategies to meet Response to Intervention and the Sheltered Instruction (SIOP) ModelByPamela LorenzoEducational Specialist in TESOLESOL Instructor for Brevard County
2 No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs) under Title III Accountability for English Language Learners (ELLS) is required under NCLB as measured by annual performance targets that must be met by all Title III-funded Local Education Agencies (LEAs)

4 Cultural Diversity1. Student's native culture should be accepted and accommodated2. The educational system should seek to expand and enrich the existing repertoire of teaching styles, instructional activities, and even administrative procedures to provide for the cultural diversity of students.In Brevard County there are 40 languages represented and in Florida there are 299 languages and 227,000 ESOL students.
5 Cultural Diversity1. Useful components of the second culture should be taughtStudents should expand and enrich their repertoire of knowledge, skills, and behaviors, and extend their cultural competenceStudents should develop positive biculturalism
6 Standards for Effective Teaching and Learning 1. Joint Productive Activity: Teacher and Students Producing Together2. Language Development: Developing Language Across the Curriculum3. Making Meaning: Connecting School to Students’ Lives4. Cognitive Challenge: Teaching Complex Thinking5. Instructional Conversation: Teaching Through ConversationEchavarria, J. (1998). Teaching language minoritystudents in elementary schools.The assessment of student’s language ability is an integral part of the lesson plan instruction. The instructional must be comprehensible and meet the needs of the student for listening, speaking, reading, and writin according to the CELLA scores, IPT Oral, and IRW reading and writing.
7 ESOL StrategiesTeachers should use a variety of instructional methods whenever possible (including visual and manipulative)Never assume there is one best way to teach anything.
8 CommunicationBICS and CALP refer to a distinction introduced by Cummins (1979) between basic interpersonal communicative skills and cognitive academic language proficiency. The distinction draws attention to the very different time periods typically required by immigrant children to acquire conversational fluency in their second language as compared to grade-appropriate academic proficiency in that language.Cummins, J. (1979) Cognitive/academic language proficiency, linguistic interdependence, the optimum age question and some other matters. Working Papers on Bilingualism, No. 19,BICS usually takes 1-3 years and CALPS takes 5-7 years.
9 Parent InvolvementParents made recommendations for improving parent involvement in their school:1. Changing the attitudes of school staff to “make the parent feel more welcome”2. Taking parents’ interests into consideration when planning activities3. Recognizing that even if parents cannot be present at school, helping their children at home is also a valuable contribution4. Providing parents with knowledge about how to be involved in a range of involvement opportunities.Pena, Delores C. (2000)Parent Involvement: Influencing factors and implications. The Journal of Educational Research, 94 (1), ppPartnerships increase the motivation of students. When the students know that parents are involved in the school, the high expectations increase students performance.
10 What is the Response To Intervention Model? 1. Multiple tiers of evidence-based instruction service delivery2. A problem-solving method designed to inform the development of interventions3. An integrated data collection/assessment system to inform decisions at each tier of service delivery
11 What does Response to Intervention look like? TeacherPlaceTimeStrategyor SkillMaterial22.214.171.124.
12 How does Response to Intervention apply to the classroom? 1. Scientific research-based instruction is delivered by highly qualified personnel2. Curriculum and instructional approaches must have a high probability of success for most students3. Differentiate instruction to meet individual learning needs
13 Why is the Response to Intervention used? 1. Data are used to guide instructional decisions and to align curriculum and instruction to assessment data2. To allocate resources3. To drive professional development decisions4. To create student growth trajectories to target and develop interventions
14 RTI FrameworkTier 1is the foundation and consists of scientific, research-based core instructional and behavioral methodologies, practices, and supports designed for all students in the general curriculum.
15 RTI FrameworkTier 2consists of supplemental instruction and interventions that are provided in addition to and in alignment with effective core instruction and behavioral supports to groups of targeted students who need additional instructional and/or behavioral support.
16 RTI FrameworkTier 3consists of intensive instructional or behavioral interventions provided in addition to and in alignment with effective core instruction with the goal of increasing an individual student’s rate of progress. Tier 3 interventions are developed for individual students using a problem-solving process.
17 Collaboration with Parents for RTI Model Parent InvolvementMeaningful and effective parental/family involvement is critical to student progress and required by both NCLB and IDEA. It is vital that parents be informed and involved at each step in the process. Regardless of whether the parent or the teacher initiated a concern, parent involvement should be facilitated throughout the process.
18 Define the problem by determining the discrepancy between what is expected and what is occurring. Ask, “What’s the problem?”2. Analyze the problem using data to determine why the discrepancy is occurring. Ask, “Why is it taking place?”3. Establish a student performance goal, develop an intervention plan to address the goal, and delineate how the student’s progress will be monitored and implementation integrity will be ensured. Ask, “What are we going to do about it?”4. Use progress monitoring data to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention plan based on the student’s response to the intervention plan. Ask, “Is it working?” If not, how will the intervention plan be adjusted to better support the student’s progress?1. Define the problem by determining the discrepancy between what is expected and what is occurring. Ask, “What’s the problem?”
19 What is the problem-solving method for RTI? 1. Define the problem by determining the discrepancy between what is expected and what is occurring. Ask, “What’s the problem?”2.

Establish a student performance goal, develop an intervention plan to address the goal, and delineate how the student’s progress will be monitored and implementation integrity will be ensured.

21 Application of RTI to English Language Learners A challenge facing educators is the difficulty in determining an English Language Learner’s (ELL) actual learning potential using standardized intelligence assessments and testing procedures. Educators often misinterpret ELL’s lack of full proficiency in English as low intelligence (Oller, 1991) or as a language or learning disability (Langdon, 1989). RtI models hold promise for preventing academic failure by providing support for culturally and linguistically diverse students within the general education environment. Ideally, this will decrease the number of ELLs who are inappropriately referred to and placed in special education (Vaughn & Fuchs, 2003).
22 ESOL Standards TESOL Standards. Goal statements for LEP students: Use English to Communicate in social setting.Use English to achieve academically in all content areas.Use English in socially and culturally appropriate ways.Best educational practices emerge when the teachers understand and use both sets of standards to guide them in making decisions about curriculum and instruction. We have an obligation to provide evidence of our teaching and student learning.
