Welcome To ESL!
In East Brunswick grades K-5 use a pull-out
ESL program, which consists of small group instruction and reinforcement of
grade level classroom language objectives.
In ESL we study the English language through practicing listening,
speaking, reading and writing. We learn about the American culture, history and
traditions while encouraging children to share and learn about different cultures
from around the world. Our lessons include learning vocabulary, reading
strategies and skills, phonics, word study, grammar and usage, and writing
Program continues to grow and expand through our increasing diverse
population. There are about 250 English
Language learners in East Brunswick Public Schools from grades K-12. Of these students they represent about 16
different languages and cultures. Students
are leveled and assessed in accordance with the WIDA performance levels. We use the WIDA CAN DO DESCRIPTORS https://www.wida.us/standards/CAN_DOs/
to highlight what language learners can do at various stages of language
development as they engage in teaching and learning in academic contexts.
