12 Tukwila Elementary School SIP ELD Inclusion Model Summary November 19, 2007 Staffing at present: ELL Cert. 1.0 FTE ELL Para. 7 hours ELL Student count 129 October 2006 Description of ELD Inclusion Model and Program for English Language Learners ELD - English Language Development Standards based approach to language acquisition in content areas. Tukwila Elementary has been implementing the ELD Standards as mandated by OSPI. The ELD Standards for Reading, Writing, Listening, & Speaking are available to teachers on the OSPI website. The ELD Standards for Reading are in final form and align with the Reading EALRs and GLEs; the other ELD content areas (Writing, Listening and Speaking) are still in draft form. All teachers in our building have hardcopies of the ELD Standards in each of the content areas in the latest version available from OSPI. This is what a typical day of ELL instruction looks like: The ELL cert. pushes-in to grade level classrooms (K-5) for push-in language acquisition instruction to differentiate & facilitate academic content area instruction in various classes (about 30 minutes each class-five days a week) during the course of the day. The ELL cert. is available to staff for collaboration/consultation/professional development. The ELL Para works in the classrooms also for about 30 minutes each class to teach ELL students in language acquisition to enhance and facilitate learning in the content area of instruction that is being taught by the mainstream teacher.

13 The Model We have been implementing the Content ESL model since the 2003/2004 school year; This is a model in which ELL students are included in their mainstream classrooms. We call it our ELD Inclusion or push-in model. In June 2003 major stakeholders proposed disbanding our half-day, self-contained program for ELL beginners (levels 1 & 2 on the LAS-O assessment) in order to implement our ELL push-in model. This move away from a pullout model and toward a new English Language Development model was based on the best practices recommendations & long-term research study done by Thomas and Collier National Study on Effectiveness of School Programs for Language Minority Students, C According to this study, schools having a wide diversity of native languages such as our school, the model of instruction that has shown to be most effective is ESL taught through academic content. This was the impetus for a change of models at Tukwila Elementary. The consensus among teachers was that the transformation to an inclusion model would be in the best interest of our ELL students in regard to their academic achievement. Our school culture is such that classroom teachers are willing and flexible enough to take on the challenge of educating not only their own students, but also ELL students from other grade levels who are a good fit or placement into a leveled reading group in their classrooms. Also, this major paradigm shift necessitates the ELL Cert. role to shift even more toward the role of coach and collaborator helping Gen. Ed. teachers to adapt and differentiate lessons in order to accelerate ELL learning for maximum student achievement in meeting the goals of the ELD Standards. Since implementing our inclusion model, ELL students have been acquiring English at Tukwila Elementary at an accelerated rate as evidenced by our WLPT & WASL scores and the number of students who have achieved to learn English well enough to exit our ELL program as specified by OSPI detailed as follows: ELL Student Achievement Exit ELL by WLPT 2001/2002: 1 student School Total: 44 ELL Exit ELL by WASL 2001/2002: NA Exit ELL by WLPT 2002/2003: 11 Students School Total: 81 ELL Exit ELL by WASL 2002/ 2003: 11 students Exit ELL by WLPT 2003/2004: 15 students School total: 105 ELL Exit ELL by WASL 2003/2004: 4 students Exit ELL by WLPT 2004/2005: 19 students School total: 126 ELL

14 Exit ELL by WASL 2004/2005: 3 students Exit ELL by WLPT-II 2005/2006: 31 students School total: 133 ELL Exit ELL by WASL 2005/2006: NA Exit ELL by WLPT-II 2006/2007: 42 students School total: 135 ELL Exit ELL by WASL 2006/2007: NA How it Works One strength of our push-in ELD model is that ELLs work with their peers in mainstream classroom setting and thus are surrounded by many people(including native-english speakers) modeling appropriate academic English. Also, the ELL teacher is aware of the pedagogy and curriculum in various classrooms, and therefore is better able to assist the General Ed. Teacher to implement strategies such as cooperative learning, and GLAD strategies that will promote achievement of ELL students by meeting the ELD Standards. In this way, The ELL teacher is able to coach Gen. Ed teachers in how to enhance their curriculum by adding language objectives to the lessons, as well as provide teachers input as to how to further differentiate instruction. The increased exposure to English language helps ELLs to acquire English better and faster than with any pull-out program. Also, the ELLs learn classroom procedures, expectations, and teacher directions by following what their English speaking peers are doing. Another benefit is that students feel like they are part of their class being with their peers rather than being segregated as a language minority class group. Also, the ELL teacher collaborates with classroom teachers to coach and model incorporation of language objectives into lessons as well as various strategies and/or accommodations to enhance English language acquisition based on the ELD Standards. Why it works The ELD inclusion or push-in model works because of the school culture that has developed and continues to evolve at this school. Our school has developed the infrastructural flexibility to meet the needs of ELLs, especially in the area of Reading so that individual students are taught at an appropriate instructional level; this is yet another meaning for the term push in. For example, a second grade teacher is willing to take in one or two fourth or fifth grade ELLs into her reading group because that is the instructional level that the child needs. All of the staff here are committed to the motto, It takes a village to educate a child, and this saying is especially true and applicable to our school when it comes to educating ELL students. In other words, we the staff are the village. In this school, that means all of the teachers take responsibility for educating the children, even the ones who are not on their class lists. The staff, especially the teachers, are so committed to the education of every child in the building that they are willing to take on the burden of an additional child or two in their

15 classrooms (for +/- 1 hour) if the need arises. The ELL cert. arranges for and facilitates tweaking individual student schedules (to push in ) according to individual needs including rearranging their specialists schedules when necessary. Professional Development ELD Standards The ELL Cert. conducted professional development for staff introducing the implementation of ELD Standards on September 28, Gen. Ed. Teachers have become familiar with the scope and sequence of the ELD Standards as well as their purpose and utility. Future professional development will continue to focus on ELD Standards in all content areas Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking as well as strategies and techniques to enhance instruction of ELLs. In order to further maximize achievement for our ELLs, professional development will continue to focus on the use of strategies that enhance learning & differentiate instruction for ELLs. Training of staff by the ELL Cert. in the enhancement of teaching strategies to meet the ELD Standards will be continuous. Professional Reference Library A facet of the Tukwila Elementary School Professional Development Cadre s work was to dedicate a bookcase in the Staff Room for books concerning professional development including many that directly relate to the topic of better teaching and instructional strategies for teaching of ELL students. The books that are housed here have such relevant topics as strategies for teaching ELL students, a set of books describing graphic organizers, and many books that help teachers to better understand various cultures and subcultures that are represented at our school. The Professional Development Cadre recently purchased $ worth of books to add to our existing collection of teacher reference books. Spanish Language for Educators Funding for this course was made available thru the district office as a mini-grant of title 3 monies. An instructor from Seattle Pacific University conducted this course in our school. Spanish is the predominant minority language amongst ELLs at this school. About half of the Tukwila Elementary staff participated in this class offered for university credit, or clock hours. This course was conducted in the spring of Professional Development District Cadre This cadre has brought on board Gen. Ed. teachers to goal set with ELL in planning future ongoing professional development for Gen. Ed. teachers. This cadre sends various Gen. Ed. teachers to workshops or conferences related to best practices in teaching ELLs. For example, our Reading Specialist will attend the Promising Practices in October 2005.

16 Also, as a result of this cadres work, several staff of this school attended the workshop, Involving Bilingual Families in Schools in Autumn, In addition, the Professional Development Cadre arranged for the ELL Cert. to attend the Thinking Maps workshop in summer The ELL Cert. is piloting the program with ELL students during the current school year. Members of this cadre who attended the GLAD Guided Language Acquisition Design training strongly recommended this training as a district-wide initiative for mainstream classroom teachers. Parent Involvement International Day Every spring we have a big event to celebrate the cultures represented at the school. The International Day includes various world foods, songs, dances, and a flag ceremony with flags from the various countries that our students have come from. Parents are invited and encouraged to attend this event. Spanish Language Parental Contact We have established dedicated times (80 minutes/day) for our bilingual paraeducator to have both in-person and telephonic Spanish contact with Hispanic parents. She also works on written translations of vital communications with parents. The ABCs of Helping your Child Succeed in School This booklet is one facet of culminating cadre work of a two year cycle of our school reform plan. It was written and produced by the Tukwila Elementary ELL / Early Literacy Cadre. This booklet is a practical guide for parents on ways they can help their young children become more literate and thus better ready for school. Beginning of School Year Parent Survey This is a survey that teachers send home at the beginning of the school year to better understand the parent and the parental expectations, concerns, and issues that they might have regarding their child and her education. This survey gives teachers the unique insight into parents perceptions of their child. No Child Left Behind Booklets The US Department of Education Publishes various titles intended for parents such as Helping Your Child Become a Reader, Helping Your Preschool Child, and Helping Your Child Succeed in School. These booklets, of which we

17 have both English and Spanish versions, were handed out to parents at Open House 2004, Open House 2005, and Open House 2006 as well as being handed out by teachers at their discretion at other times of the year. Promoting ELL Reading Interest & Parental Interaction Library Collection One focus of the school is to provide a larger number of books that are relevant to the various cultures represented in our school and thus the school librarian has been expanding our collection of non-fiction books about countries around the world, which contain information on the country s culture & customs. Another recent addition is numerous books about the cooking culture of various cuisines of the world. In addition, numerous bilingual books have been added to the collection over the past two years as research shows that a child who continues to grow in reading in her fist language will also achieve higher in English. The library has also been adding a vast array of various language translation dictionaries to its reference collection to help ELL students better or more precisely express themselves in English. Approximately $ has been spent in the last year or so for the purchase of bilingual library materials. ELL Reading Instruction & Technology The ELL / Early Literacy Cadre purchased $ of Leap Frog, Leap Pad instructional technology equipment. This expenditure is consistent with the technology portion of the SIP for Tukwila Elementary. In the pilot year, 2005/2006, we are providing each grade level with one work station to be used throughout the school day, or even for students to check out and take home. This is a user-friendly interactive reading aide that comes self-contained in a backpack, complete with all of the hardware, software and books. The Leap Pad system is designed to help beginner and emergent readers comprehend, excel and move on to the next level in reading. Upon evaluation, the collection of Leap Pads may be expanded in future.

18 Tukwila Elementary School SIP Professional Development Summary November 2007 Due to the ever-changing professional development needs of our staff, the proposed professional development calendar is fluid. We will work within the district calendar of early release days, Learning Improvement Days (LID), and staff meetings to plan the sessions as needs arise. District staff may be also be asked to attend trainings after school or during the school day with release time. The following topics were identified last year and continue to be the focus of professional development at Tukwila Elementary School in the second year of a two-year cycle. Some new topics this year are the Response to Intervention model. Also, a new science curriculum was adopted this year; with the adoption, initial-use trainings, expository writing and WASL preparation trainings have been provided by Seattle Public Schools. In addition to these topics, we will be constantly evaluating new needs as they arise and will include them into staff development time. Professional development topics include: Response to Intervention (RTI) Science Initial-Use, Expository Writing, and WASL preparation classes 6-Trait Writing Math Problem-Solving strategies CASL Group work support for reading program (Houghton Mifflin) implementation Technology Training Constant review and application of previous staff development topics In addition to using early release, staff meeting, and LID days, informal professional development will occur through activities such as: conversations with Learning & Teaching Specialists, staff collaboration, principal conversations during grade level meetings or Kid Talk.
