MADISON PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT English as a Second Language Grade 6-12 Authored by: Deborah Neely Reviewed by: Matthew A. Mingle Director of Curriculum and Instruction Last Updated: Fall 2013 Members of the Board of Education: Lisa Ellis, President Patrick Rowe, Vice-President David Arthur Kevin Blair Shade Grahling Linda Gilbert Thomas Haralampoudis James Novotny Superintendent: Dr. Michael Rossi Madison Public Schools 359 Woodland Road, Madison, NJ I. OVERVIEW English as a Second Language is a daily developmental language course designed for children of limited English proficiency to whom English is not a native language and for whom success in the regular English curriculum is questionable. Basic communication skills are emphasized (listening, speaking, reading and writing), along with an understanding of and appreciation for a new culture, land, society and language. Teaching is based on the premise that mastery of the English language is a necessary skill for academic success and for survival and prosperity in American society. The course is highly individualized in order to meet the needs of each student enrolled. Each student is tested upon entrance to the program and annually thereafter to determine his/her current level of proficiency and fluency in the English language. Students begin work on their own level and progress according to their own capabilities. Students shall be assessed annually for exit from the program in accordance with state regulations. TESOL Standards Goal 1, Standard 1 To use English to communicate in social settings: Students will use English to participate in social interactions. Goal 1, Standard 2 To use English to communicate in social settings: Students will interact in, through, and with spoken and written English for personal expression and enjoyment. Goal 1, Standard 3 To use English to communicate in social settings: Students will use learning strategies to extend their communicative competence. II.GOALS of the Madison English as a Second Language Program (Adapted from the WIDA 2012 Amplified Standards) 1. To provide the student with the linguistic, social and cultural skills needed to effectively communicate with native speakers of American English. 2. To alert the student to the commonalities of his native language and American English. 3. To immediately involve the student in classroom activities that will install a feeling of personal pride, self-confidence and success from the very beginning. 4. To help bridge the gap between ESL instruction and regular academic subjects and to cultivate work and study habits in our freer classroom atmosphere. This helps promote self-esteem, confidence and socialization skills. 5. To promote multicultural awareness and appreciation, while encouraging the student to maintain his/her own culture and ethnic pride. 6. To allow the student to progress at his/her own pace, according to the learner's age, linguistic aptitude, learning style, cognitive development and emotional needs until the student demonstrates a proficiency which indicates readiness to move on to the next level. III. STUDENT OUTCOMES These outcomes which have been adopted in part from New Jersey s English Language Proficiency Standards and the WIDA 2012 Amplified Standards, address the knowledge and skills needed by English Language Learners, ELLs, (also known as limited English proficient/lep students) in grades pre-k through 12 to succeed linguistically and in academic content areas. They reflect the social and academic language expectations of ELLs in grades PreK-12. These standards were adopted by New Jersey in order to meet the requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (Title III), which states that LEP students must meet the same challenging standards that all students are expected to meet. These standards integrate both language and academic content in four language domains listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They are divided into five grade level clusters (pre-k-k, 1-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12) and five English language proficiency levels with both formative and summative frameworks. These standards, which are aligned to the ACCESS for ELLs proficiency test, (required by Title III), can be accessed at: The WIDA English Language Development (ELD) Standards represent the social, instructional, and academic language that students need to engage with peers, educators, and the curriculum in schools. 1) English language learners communicate in English for SOCIAL, INSTRUCTIONAL and ACADEMIC purposes within the school setting. 2) English language learners communicate information, ideas, concepts and academic language/language necessary for academic success in the content area of LANGUAGE ARTS. 3) English language learners communicate information, ideas, concepts and academic language/vocabulary necessary for academic success in the content area of MATHEMATICS. 4) English language learners communicate information, ideas, concepts and academic language/vocabulary necessary for academic success in the content area of SCIENCE. 5) English language learners communicate information, ideas, concepts and academic language necessary for academic success in the content area of SOCIAL STUDIES.
