  • 31% English speaking ELLs drop-out of high school
  • 51% Non-English speaking ELLs drop out of high school

3. Student Dropout Rates 4. ELL Students Across the United States (U.S. Department of Education, NCELA, 2007) Funded by U.S. Department of Education 5. Someone has toteachthese children! Funded by U.S. Department of Education 6. Someone has toreachthese children! Funded by U.S. Department of Education 7. Untrained teachers may be a factor in ELL student drop out rates across the nation.

  • Only a few states have passed laws for specific educational programs for ELL students.
  • (Texas is not one of them!)
  • Untrained teachers are teaching and making decisions about instructional programs for their ELL students.

8. The goal of this research is to discover what types of Instructional Programs are available for ELL teachers. 9. Why should this study be done?

  • School districts are requiring all teachers to become ELL certified.
  • Training available = how to take the test
  • District belief is with more certified ELL teachers the lower the dropout rate.
  • Standard Instructional Program needs to be implemented throughout school district.

  • Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach (CALLA)
  • Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP)
  • Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE)
  • Bilingual Cooperative Integrated Reading and Composition (BCIRC)
