Help One of the Fastest Growing Segments in Schools Today
A fluid, intuitive understanding of English is crucial for academic and life success for all students—regardless of background or ethnicity. Compass Learning provides the tools teachers need to help.
USING THE ASSISTIVE LANGUAGE METHOD AND INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES KEEPS STUDENTS ENGAGED AND LEARNING
Compass Learning’s English Language Learner (ELL) program is Web-based, interactive, and engaging—even for struggling students. The multimedia-rich environment and animated lessons keep students engaged while their language and math skills improve.
The ELL program uses a communicative, interactive, experiential approach to second-language instruction. The lessons focus on real-world conversations and weave language skills into exploratory activities. This approach is patterned on the way a young child would learn his or her own native language.
THE ELL PROGRAM COMES IN A VARIETY OF FIRST LANGUAGES
As our ELL program immerses students in American English, we use assistive language support to help students navigate the online activities in a variety of first languages:
- Haitian Creole
- Chinese (Mandarin)
Through fun interactive lessons that strengthen language and literacy skills, students make the language their own. Plus, constant feedback and assessment ensure students get the personalized instruction they need.
ELL IS AVAILABLE FOR K–12
Compass Learning ELL is offered in two versions: Levels K–6 (Elementary) and Levels 7–12 (Secondary). The Elementary Level is designed for children ages 5–12 with little or no previous knowledge of English. It addresses basic reading and language learning skills through age-appropriate topics and themes.
The Secondary Level is intended for learners from beginning to advanced levels. Both versions have content that is customized to align with states' core reading/language arts standards, Common Core State Standards, and the standards of the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
