When English language learners struggle to access academic content due to limited English proficiency, they fall further and further behind their peers. With Edmentum Courseware's ELL Foundations library, you can give your entering, emerging, and developing ELLs the targeted support they need to accelerate their English-language acquisition while they make progress toward successfully mastering state standards and achieving college and career readiness. With these fully online courses, you can scale the way you support ELLs, whether learning takes place in person or virtually.
Scale ELL support with two robust courses
Level 1 Course
Four Modalities of Learning
The Newcomer course in the ELL Foundations library is made up of 23 lessons that facilitate the introduction of basic vocabulary and sentence structure necessary for beginning English language learners.
Level 1 course
The Level 1 course consists of 32 lessons built using multi-genre, multicultural reading selections with Lexile® measures. As students work through the lessons, they continue to build their vocabularies, hone their English reading skills, and sharpen their control of English syntax and grammar.
Activities to support all four modalities of language learning
Whether working through the Newcomer or Level 1 course, students will encounter activities that support all four modalities of language learning: listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Reinforce learning with self-paced or teacher-led instruction
Students can complete the ELL Foundations courses at their own pace, progressing through the courses as the teacher provides feedback and guidance. For teacher-led learning, student support guides and lesson plans are available to educators for small-group and whole-class instruction.
Track progress with data dashboards and reports
Always know how your students are performing with the powerful data views available in Courseware. Detailed dashboards, as well as a variety of user-friendly reports, give you instant visibility into your students’ mastery test results, time-on-task, modules mastered, and more.
Provide support with unparalleled customization, flexibility, and interoperability
Our feature-rich platform gives you the ability to customize content to meet the needs of your implementation. Assign ELL Foundations courses on their own, use Custom Course Builder to integrate them into core content courses, or assign modules through Flex Assignments. Plus, integrations with Clever and ClassLink, as well as leading LMS providers, and SSO capabilities with Microsoft 365 and Google for Education make managing student data easy and provide educators and learners with a seamless experience.
