“Secondary School Courses Designed to Address the Language Needs and Academic Gaps of Long Term English Learners”
by Laurie Olsen, Ph.D. A Californians Together Publication

Well over half of the secondary school English Learners in California are Long Term English Learners – struggling academically and stuck in progressing towards English proficiency despite six or more years in U.S. schools. Many secondary schools and districts, feeling the urgency of meeting the needs of these Long Term English Learners, are attempting to modify curriculum or create new courses that address the unique language and academic gaps of these students. Most are doing so without guidance, without a clear sense of how best to design these 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 Language Needs and Academic Gaps of Long Term English Learners”, culls the lessons learned from districts throughout the state and provides needed guidance for the field. The contents include: • Overview of the need for an LTEL course • Case studies from four districts about how the LTEL courses were developed • Overview of Ten Essential Components of LTEL courses • Description of the materials and curriculum drawn upon for LTEL classes • Discussion of things to consider in structuring the classes • Impacts • Discussion of common challenges and lessons learned • Recommendations for the state • A Planning Checklist to use in preparing for and implementing LTEL classes
