English for Speakers of Other Languages
Services are provided to support English learners access the curriculum in the classroom.
The information below is from the FCPS Elementary ESOL website:
Elementary ESOL Services are individualized to meet students' English language development needs. ESOL teachers work directly with English Learners (ELs) to advance English language development by building academic language and content understandings in tandem. ELs develop English language proficiency by engaging in reading and writing tasks and academic conversations.
Elementary ELs are placed in age-appropriate grade level classes where teachers use strategies and scaffolds to support them in accessing the grade level curriculum. ELs actively engage in meaningful learning tasks with their English-speaking peers across disciplines (language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies) throughout the instructional day. ESOL teachers collaborate with and support teachers and teams to make the instructional match for ELs and build academic language and disciplinary literacy. ESOL teachers collaborate with school staff so that explicit opportunities for English language development and language learning is supported throughout the day in multiple contexts.
