What you need to know about supporting ELL students with technology

English Language Learners are facing increased challenges in today’s learning environments. Language barriers, cultural barriers, students with interrupted formal education… it’s difficult to know just how to include English Language Learners.

How can you best support ELLs so they can better comprehend content, and effectively communicate in writing?

Help your struggling language learners succeed

Sign up to join Texthelp Product Manager, Kathleen Colburn for a live webinar exploring features of Read&Write and Co:Writer that can help your ELL students succeed.

In this webinar

Our Product Manager, Kathleen Colburn, will walk you through how you can implement simple technology tools to help support your ELLs, making them feel connected and as if they belong in every classroom.

Kathleen will cover features in both Read+Write as well as Co:Writer that will help students gain independence by helping them succeed in:

  • Reading and comprehension
  • Spelling and grammar
  • Vocabulary and translation

We’ll also share with you our guide to teaching language learners in Tier I.

This guide offers simple strategies and resources to help educators, administrators, and MTSS teams create learning environments where ELLs:

  • Feel a greater sense of safety, belonging, and connection.
  • Can gain cultural context and understanding from instruction.
  • Are able to add richness and value to their communities.
  • Have tools that help them understand the general curriculum, build vocabulary, and boost language acquisition, independently.
