    Types of ELL Services at Buffalo Trail

    Reading Support

    Some students are pulled out of the general education classroom to work on specific reading skills and strategies.  Depending on a student’s needs, he or she may meet with the ELL teacher from one to five days per week for no more than 30 minutes.

    Classroom Support

    Push-in ELL support is when the ELL teacher goes to an ELL student’s grade level class to provide help.  In this model, the ELL student does not leave his or her class, rather the ELL teacher helps modify the in-class lesson or provide reinforcement and additional support so that the student may successfully complete grade-level tasks within the general education setting.  Depending on a student’s needs, he or she may receive push-in support from one to five days per week.

     Some students who are able to successfully complete grade level tasks, and who are meeting grade-level standards independently, may simply have their progress monitored by the classroom teacher and the ELL teacher. In this instance, the ELL teacher and general education teacher will communicate regularly to monitor the progress of the ELL student and help will be provided if the ELL student demonstrates the need for assistance.
