Olivia Fields Audubon Middle School and High Achieving Gifted Magnet English Language Learner Curriculum Period 5 Class ____________________________________________________________________ We are using the English 3D curriculum because it will ensure all our ELL students are on a path toward college. English 3D helps our students gain confidence by focusing on college and career readiness skills. The program works on developing the following skill sets: • Teaching high-leverage, portable academic language, including vocabulary, syntax, and grammar • Improving speaking and listening skills through daily opportunities for class discussions, peer collaboration, and formal speeches • Developing academic writing skills in summarizing, justification, argument, and research • Engaging students with interesting nonfiction and informational texts that present real-world issues relevant to teens’ lives • Making regular connections between course work and the demands of college and the workplace The topics are timely and very relevant to our students everyday experiences. They enjoy the lessons and the class.
