Middle School English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Developing English Language Proficiency and Content Understandings

The middle school ESOL curriculum is a scaffolded content based curriculum that fully aligns to the essential understandings, knowledge and skills of the grade level Standards of Learning. The curriculum is designed to support English Learners by providing context, building background knowledge and vocabulary, and fostering the academic discourse of English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies so that students may successfully navigate rigorous academic content.

Middle school ESOL instruction provides English Learners with a language focused environment to develop the academic language necessary to demonstrate complex thinking and learning across the disciplines. Students learn to recognize and use language explicit to the task in the four domains of reading, writing, speaking and listening through engaging interactions with teachers and peers.

ESOL course selection is based upon the English Language Proficiency Level of the individual student.
