Many secondary schools and districts, feeling theurgency of meeting the needs of these Long Term English Learners, are attempting to modifycurriculum or create new courses that address the unique language and academic gaps of thesestudents. Most are doing so without guidance, without a clear sense of how best to designthese classes, and making do with whatever curricular resources they happen to have or hear about. Now, a new publication, “Secondary School Courses Designed to Address the LanguageNeeds and Academic Gaps of Long Term English Learners”, culls the lessons learned fromdistricts throughout the state and provides needed guidance for the field.
