Supporting English Language Learners

Supporting English Language Learners

Supporting English Language Learners K-12

Ontario schools serve a student population from a rich array of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Throughout the province, many students in English language schools are English language learners (ELLs) – students who are learning the language of instruction at the same time as they are learning the curriculum and developing a full range of literacy skills.

More teachers than ever before are responding to the specific kinds of challenges that these students bring with them to the classroom. Teachers are also learning that the results can be inspiring, exciting, and rewarding for everyone.

All students, including English language learners, are expected to meet the rigorous challenges of the Ontario curriculum. Effective language and literacy instruction begins with the needs of the learner clearly in mind, and all teachers – across all content areas – are teachers of both language and literacy. Their success is a shared responsibility. Teachers and administrators are working together with parents to ensure that all of Ontario’s students are ready to take their place in a cohesive and productive society.
