English Language Learner (ELL) Programs at the Secondary Level in Relation to Student Performance
Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory NWREL
This publication reviews literature and presents findings concerning programs at the secondary school level that are designed to serve English language learners (ELLs). These are students who come from homes where English is not the primary language spoken and whose English language skills are assessed as needing improvement. The report organizes the reviewed literature by ELL instructional models, by the research or study design types, and by the types of outcomes. Findings are organized by four types: (1) teacher behaviors and/or attitudes; (2) student behaviors and/or attitudes; (3) schoolwide outcomes; and (4) student academic and/or achievement performance. About 20 studies provide findings related to secondary-level ELL student academic/achievement performance. The following are appended: (1) Annotated Sources; (2) Bibliography; and (3) Glossary of Terms.
