For grades K-5. This is a face-to-face program at our Ocracoke campus.
The five components of effective literacy instruction are of particular importance to our English Language Learners including Phonological Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension. Writing is also a key component and is one avenue for meaningful use of language. English Language Learners can often participate in writing activities, even when their speaking skills are limited. Elementary ESL teachers will explore these components while collaborating with colleagues and a district ESL coach to learn how to help their pupils improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills based on reading science.
