Supporting Elementary English Language Learners

Grade Levels: 1 - 8

This document replaces The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 1 – 8: English As a Second Language and English Literacy Development– A Resource Guide, 2001.

This resource is one in a series written to assist classroom teachers in supporting a growing demographic within Ontario schools – English language learners. The goal is to help teachers understand the kinds of supports that English language learners require to learn the English and content of the classroom. The focus is on making learning visible and accessible for English language learners who face their own unique challenges but, more importantly, who present a rich resource in classrooms throughout the province.
