Supporting Instruction for English Learners During COVID-19
April 10, 2020
ELSF’s highest priority is making sure our EL students do not fall further behind academically during school closures and the transition to remote learning. Below are the tools, resources, and other responses to the Covid-19 crisis as it affects English learners that ELSF has produced and compiled thus far.
Read Dr. Lily Wong Fillmore’s open letter to educators, families, and students of English Learners on challenges and solutions for remote learning following Covid-19.
ELSF has developed high-level guidance for districts and educators as we move forward in planning for the learning needs of EL students during school closures.
If you are an organization that develops content and are exploring ways to make your materials more accessible and impactful for EL students and their families, contact us here at ELSF: firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to support your efforts!
We invite you to share with us any specific guidance we should be providing related to instructional access for ELs—we would love to pass this information along to through our networks and to our partners. Please reach out to email@example.com.
ELSF is a fiscally sponsored project of the New Venture Fund (NVF), a 501(c)(3) public charity. This arrangement enables ELSF to focus on achieving its mission while NVF manages all accounting, human resources, contracts, grants management, and compliance issues on its behalf.
