ELL Support Blocks/Learning Strategies

Credits: 4

In ELL study blocks students determine the best use of their time in consultation with an ELL teacher. Past students have found a balance in using these blocks to complete work from other classes with access to 1:1 support from the teacher, as well as to practice reading, writing and speaking in English. They are ideal for students who anticipate struggling with time constraints or a heavy academic course load, and would like to be able to review content material in school time, and/or would like time to work on specific language skills (for example writing analytical essays, or building academic vocabulary).
