EL Program Model for Elementary SchoolEL students spend the majority of their day in classrooms with English speaking peers. This allows them to be a part of the student body within their school. Their Interaction with peers provides models for language and social development. Often, an EL teacher or assistant will “push in” to support, modify, or provide accommodations for the student.
They may also receive assistance for a portion of the day through the pull-out component of the EL program. In pull-out, they go to the EL classroom for intensive instruction in English and also receive language support with content area subjects. Grade level teachers accommodate and modify work for EL students. Pull-out does not exceed two hours a day.
