3 Strategies to Teach EL Literacy Instruction


Small and Whole Group Instruction 
Specifically tailored to serve native Spanish-speaking students as they acquire English language reading skills found in Countdown, Blast, and HD Word instruction. 
What is Crosslinguistic Referencing?
Crosslinguistic Referencing is when a student can readily understand a concept in a new language because it already has been established in their own! When this happens the languages cross over and make connections!
