The EL student population is growing which means more teachers are challenged to ensure all students are progressing through their curriculum. Teachers must provide grade-level content while at the same time ensuring students become proficient in the English language. Most mainstream teachers have little to no preparation or training to manage both priorities successfully.


Make Teaching Easier and Learning More Effective

ELL Made Simple's professional development coaching uses three simple, research-based frameworks to provide easy tips and techniques for engaging ELs. The LoTi® Framework guides teaching best practices, the H.E.A.T.® Framework guides student learning practices, and the ELL Levers™ Framework prioritizes strategies that address the unique challenges faced by English Language Learners.
