  8. Research & Findings • Harvard Graduate School of Education Cambridge • With Proper Intervention, ESL students Not at Learning Disadvantage • Conducted by Nonie Lesaux, assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education • 1,000 native English- and ESL- speaking children immersed in mainstream English classrooms in Canada from K to 2nd grade • Large sample of ESL students with diverse linguistic and social backgrounds who entered kindergarten (33 different languages) • Screened children for reading difficulties • Trained teachers to focus on pre-literacy instruction & intervention for students who are at-risk for reading failure

  9. Research & Findings cont. • Key Findings • The study found that by the end of 2nd grade, the ESL children had attained reading skills that were similar to, and in some cases better than, their native English-speaking peers. • All children—regardless of their native language—are likely to benefit from early interventions. • Simultaneous achievement of English reading skills and language proficiency can be an effective process, but investment from the school district, staff resources and teachers are also necessary to achieve early literacy and vocabulary. • Progress Monitor students • There is a correlation between vocabulary development and effective literacy instruction in ELLs.

  10. Quotes “Instruction that provides substantial coverage in the key components of reading—identified by the National Reading Panel (NICHD, 2000) as phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and text comprehension—has clear benefits for language-minority students.” -Diane August & Timothy Shanahan Developing Literacy in Second-Language Learners: Report of the National Literacy Panel on Language-Minority Children and Youth 2006

  11. Quotes “At the conclusion of the lesson series the child is still in need of rich opportunities for further development in the language of instruction. His exposure to English vocabulary and grammar has been limited, and many of the concepts he encounters in his classroom reading will be unfamiliar. However, after a series of Reading Recovery lessons the child then has three complementary routes to that further language learning, via oral language, writing, and reading.” -Marie M. Clay (2005)
