2013 Funded Project: Enhancing Our Understanding of Our English Language Learners
Granted: Funding to purchase five sets, to be housed at each of Northborough’s schools, of five cultural reference guides and materials pertaining to English Language Learners.
Summary Description: Northborough has been enriched by a growing number of linguistically and culturally diverse families moving into our community. This project will make research-based materials available to all teachers at each of the five Northborough schools to help the staff develop an understanding of specific schooling traditions, practices, circumstances and expectations that influence students as they move to our country. The resources will also provide practical strategies for assessment and intervention to better guide the students in their acquisition of the English language.
