Improving outcomes for ELLs continues to be an important topic in education and even more so as of late, as federal requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) require an English language proficiency (ELP) indicator in all state plans. One scaffold that teachers can use to help their ELLs communicate more clearly and confidently is using sentence frames.
Given the constantly evolving landscape of special education, there needs to be ongoing conversation on the topic between a broad range of experts, educators, parents, and students. With the hope of inspiring some of this important conversation, we've compiled a list of five trending issues in special education that have been top of mind at Edmentum.
In this series, we are going to take a close look at special education by delving into some of its exceptional challenges as well as its supreme benefits. We will start by introducing the IDEA legislation and its system of classifying students with disabilities.
