Teaching English Language Learners (ELLs)

The Pennsylvania Standards-Aligned System's curriculum frameworks for math and literacy include an ELL overlay. While an overlay has not yet been created for the arts, the existing overlay outlines strategies that can be transferred to other content areas.

Additionally, the Pennsylvania Department of Education maintains a number of resources pages for teaching English Language Learners.

Do you need documents translated into another language? PDE and the Chester County Intermediate Unit offer a document translation service called TransACT.
