Multimodal learning opportunities

English language learners (ELLs) make up an estimated 4.4 million students in America’s public-school system, highlighting a growing need for quality educational materials that target English-language proficiency with multimodal instruction that gives students multiple opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Both Exact Path and ESL ReadingSmart support all four learning modalities by incorporating listening, speaking, reading, and writing support into lessons and activities.

Scaffolded instruction delivered in bite-sized chunks

ELLs don’t all learn in the same way, nor do they progress through instruction at the same pace. Edmentum programs support students at all levels by delivering scaffolded instruction that begins at a student’s instructional level, rather than grade level. Instruction is both age-appropriate and encouraging so that students will stay motivated and can experience success over time.

 

Flexible approach to teaching and learning

Support the diverse needs of ELLs through a flexible approach to learning. Edmentum’s web-based programs help support the diverse needs of your ELLs and overcome the challenges of teaching in multilevel classrooms, giving students multiple, low-pressure opportunities to demonstrate mastery and comprehension. Students and teachers can engage in independent, small-group, or whole-class learning opportunities via learning paths, short- and medium-cycle assessments, and teacher resources.

Isaac School District in Phoenix, AZ, used Exact Path during the 2016–17 school year. The distribution of growth scores shows that ELL students exhibit no disadvantage and exhibit the same diversity and range of growth as non-ELLs.

 

Ensure academic proficiency for K-8th grade ELLs

ELLs can successfully navigate through Exact Path independently by engaging in scaffolded instruction and practice—gaining exposure to and familiarity with academic vocabulary and developing individual writing skills. Instruction within a student’s individual learning path is designed to develop vocabulary and language skills and is supported with audio, models, and visual supports to help differentiate content for all targeted proficiency levels.

 

Promote English-language proficiency for ELLs, grades 4–adult

ESL ReadingSmart offers individualized learning pathways with quality content for newcomers, beginners, intermediates, early advanced, and advanced ELLs—helping teachers solve the challenge of teaching ELLs in multilevel classrooms. Each lesson contains activities, vocabulary, and reading selections for students to build academic vocabulary and support English language proficiency.

 

Real-time tracking of the most important measures of student success

Edmentum programs include a variety of real-time reporting options that bring together student data points like progress, growth, pacing, or usage - all designed to demonstrate meaningful learning trends and actionable measures of student success.
