According to the Department of Education (2010), 21% of school age students speak a language other than English. One in twenty of these students are not proficient in English. Though the number of English language learners (ELLs) is increasing, New York State does not provide any type of recommended model for teachers to follow in order to effectively teach these students. This project explores the most efficacious instructional methods for teaching English to students who are native speakers of other languages through a literature review and interviews with teachers of ELLs in the Rochester area.
