• Texas Education Code (TEC)§29.052 defines…
“Student of limited English proficiency
(LEP) – a student whose primary language is
other than English and whose English language
skills are such that the student has difficulty
performing ordinary class work in English.”
• The term English Language Learner (ELL) is used
interchangeably with LEP.

Identification of LEP Students
To identify our LEP students the Texas Administrative
Code (TAC §89.1215) requires districts to include two
specific questions in the home language survey
presented to the parents of new incoming students to the
districts:
(1) "What language is spoken in your home most of the
time?“
(2) "What language does your child (do you) speak most
of the time?
If a language other than English is written as a response
then appropriate assessments are required.
10
List of Approved Tests for Identification
of LEP Students
May 1, 2006 the Committee convened to review
publishers and approve a new list of tests for
identification, placement and exit of
Bilingual/ESL students. The updated list has
been provided through the listserve.

11
Legal Requirements
When is a Bilingual Program required?
• Each school district which has an enrollment of 20 or
more limited English proficient students (LEP) of the
same language classification in the same grade level
district-wide shall offer a bilingual education program
for LEP students in Pre-K to grade 5
• Grade 6 shall be included when clustered with the
elementary grades TAC[§89.1205 (a)]
12
Legal Requirements
When is an English as a Second Language (ESL)
program required?
All LEP students for whom a district is not required to
offer a Bilingual education program shall be provided an
ESL program, regardless of the students’ grade levels
and home Language, and regardless of the number of
students.

News from the field of English
Language Learners Research
A large scale study has been completed by Dr. Claude
Goldenberg and Dr. Michael Kamil of California State
University
Their Preliminary report reflects the following:
• Primary language instruction is very important for the
academic success of second language learners
• Vocabulary development is a critical factor in second
language literacy
• Parents with low literacy will increase their personal
libraries when informed of the importance of reading and
book availability for their children
(American Association of Publishers October 2004-Washington D.C.)
17
Best Practice for English
Language Learners
• Integrated Language and Content Instruction
• Lessons and units that foster concept
development, practice, and application
• Building background knowledge by providing
concrete experiences
• Instruction that incorporates students’ cultures
and language
(Dr. Emma Violand-Sánchez, Supervisor English for Speakers of Other
Languages & High Intensity Language Training Arlington Public Schools,
Oct. 2004)
18
Recent Literacy development
findings in Spanish-speaking ELLs
• Spanish phonemic awareness, letter identification,
and word reading measured in grade 2 were reliable
predictors of English performance on parallel tasks
at the end of grades 3 and 4
(The International Dyslexia Association quarterly newspaper August,
Carlo, Calderon, and Proctor, Spring 2005)
19
Recent Literacy development
findings in Spanish-speaking ELLs
• Vocabulary-building activities that require students
to interact meaningfully with words through writing,
making personal and semantic connections, and
that specifically teach word learning strategies
appear to be the most promising pedagogies to
increase reading comprehension.
(The International Dyslexia Association quarterly newspaper August,
Carlo, Calderon, and Proctor, Spring 2005)
20
Recent Literacy development
findings in Spanish-speaking ELLs
• L1 word reading skills transfer to L2, but children
must have first language literacy in the skill for the
transfer to take place; oral proficiency in the first
language is not sufficient.
• Vocabulary is an extremely important predictor of
reading comprehension
(The International Dyslexia Association quarterly newspaper August,
Carlo, Calderon, and Proctor, Spring 2005)
21
Recent Literacy development
findings in Spanish-speaking ELLs
• Children instructed bilingually were able to
achieve high levels of English and Spanish
literacy. Adjusting for SES, they were at the 7.2
grade level in Spanish Broad Reading and the 5.8
grade level in English Broad Reading at the end of
Grade 5.
(The International Dyslexia Association quarterly newspaper August,
Carlo, Calderon, and Proctor, Spring 2005)

David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Overall Findings
• Few studies examine the benefits of teaching
phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, oral
reading fluency, reading comprehension, writing, or
spelling
• Few use experimental or quasi-experimental research
designs to come to firm conclusions about effective
practices for building literacy in language minority
students.
• This is very different than the research situation with
L1 students.
– NRP identified 450 experimental/quasi-experimental
studies of instruction with English-only students
– NLP identified 17 such studies
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
23
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Overall Findings
• In the aggregate, however, it appears that what
works with native-speaker populations generally
works with English-language learners.
• In fact, instruction that emphasizes literacy
components confers a learning advantage to
English language learners.
• The effect sizes for such teaching tend to be in the
moderate range, meaning that its benefits are
large enough to be important.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
24
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Overall Findings
• Effect sizes for language minority students are lower
and more variable than those for native-English
speaking students, suggesting that such teaching is
likely to be necessary but insufficient.
• It is possible that combining high-quality instruction in
the literacy components with adjustments that take
into account student’s first and second language
proficiency would lead to higher effect sizes.
• Research is needed to test this hypothesis.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
25
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Issues for ELLs
• Specific sounds and sound placement in words
differ for different languages.
• Phonological tasks with unknown words are more
difficult.
• For ELLs, unfamiliar phonemes and graphemes
make decoding and spelling difficult.
• For literate ELLs, English graphemes have
different sounds in L1.
• Limited English proficiency prevents children from
using word meaning to figure out how to read a
word.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
26
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
NLP Phonemic Awareness and Phonics:
Research
• Findings are consistent with the very solid L1 research
findings-both phonemic awareness and phonics
instruction confer clear benefits on children’s reading
development.
• There is no evidence that phonemic awareness and
phonics instruction in English needs to be delayed
until a certain threshold of English oral language
proficiency is attained.
• * Important to keep in mind issues raised in previous
slide.
• Helping students hear English sounds that don’t exist
or are not salient in their home language is beneficial.

Research on Effective Instruction:
Fluency: Issues for ELLS
• Fluency embraces both word recognition and
comprehension.
• ELLs often have less opportunity to read aloud in
English with feedback.
• There are too few studies of teaching oral reading
fluency with ELLs to draw firm conclusions.
• Fluency is an important factor in comprehension
and comprehension training influences fluency.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
28
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Fluency: Research
• Fluency training similarly benefits ELLs and
English-speaking students.
• Existing studies have used good English models
and paired ELLs with proficient English readers.
• Existing studies ensure students understand the
text before they read it.
• With good instruction, ELLs can meet the same
benchmarks.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
29
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Vocabulary: Issues/Strengths for ELLS
• ELLS arrive at school with a much more limited
English vocabulary than English-speaking students.
• There are many basic words that English-Speaking
students know that ELLs do not.
• ELLs may lack labels in English for concepts they
know and have labels for in their first language.
• ELLs and English speakers may have different
concepts for the same label.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
30
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Vocabulary: Issues/Strengths for ELLS
• There is some English vocabulary that may be
especially important in comprehending connected
text-cohesion markers for example—that
necessitates explicit instruction.
• Words with multiple meanings can be of a source
of confusion.
• ELLs literate in a first language that has many
cognates with English have an important resource.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
31
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Vocabulary Research: Summary
• Very few empirical studies
• Incidental earning improved vocabulary when the
oral discourse is aligned with the visual images.
Students need to have some English proficiency to
benefit from its intervention.
• Intentional learning improves vocabulary
– Recurrent exposure to novel words,
– Use in meaningful contexts,
– Active processing of word meanings
– Explicit word analysis
•

32
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Comprehension: Issues for ELLs
• Limited word recognition skills and fluency impede
comprehension.
• Limited vocabulary impedes comprehension.
• Structural differences between languages can mislead
ELLs.
• Culturally unfamiliar text is more difficult to
comprehend.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )
33
David J. Francis National Reading Panel
Research on Effective Instruction:
Comprehension Research: Summary
• Few empirical studies focused exclusively on
comprehension and ELLs.
• Too few studies to determine best ways to
facilitate comprehension in ELLs
• Unlike first language research, strategy instruction
did not always help reading comprehension.
(Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics-Presentation on March 7, 2006 )

Examples of modifications to
interventions based on research
• Identify and clarify difficult words and passages
– Pre-teach vocabulary
– Paraphrase text to make it more comprehensible
– Use children’s first language
• Constantly monitor student’s comprehension
– Ask lots of questions
– Ask different levels of questions
• Provide opportunities for students to practice L2
– Story retells
– Written responses

The Role of Language in Literacy Development
•
•
•
Identify factors and conditions under which
Spanish-speaking children develop proficient
literacy skills in English and in Spanish
Factors operating at different levels (child,
classroom, family, school, community) account
for variability in development of these skills
Explication of this variability requires
systematic measurement and analysis of these
factors within and between these different
levels

Phonemic Awareness and Phonics:
Research and Instruction
•
•
•
A broad research base on native speakers of
alphabetic languages shows that phonological
awareness is important to acquisition of
literacy in all alphabetic languages (Ziegler &
Goswami, 2005).
As mentioned, findings from the limited
research on instruction with language
minorities are consistent with the very solid L1
research findings.
Phonemic awareness and phonics instruction
confer clear benefits on children’s reading

–
Research Questions:
To what extent is phonological awareness a single
construct across languages?
To what extent is phonological awareness distinct from
letter-word identification?
Motivating Perspective:
Relations among outcomes may reveal important
insights, esp. across languages (multivariate)
Education is a social phenomenon in which the context
may have important implications, i.e., classrooms may
differ in important ways (multilevel)

Texas Essential Knowledge
and Skills (TEKS) Revisions
• (3) English language learners (ELLs) in fourth grade
may be at different stages of language acquisition.
The following general proficiency levels are not
grade specific: beginning, intermediate, advanced,
and advanced high. ELLs may exhibit different
proficiency levels within the four language domains:
listening, speaking, reading, and writing. For
example, an ELL may exhibit oral proficiency in
English at the advanced level and reading and
writing proficiency at the intermediate level. The
proficiency levels within the language domains are
affected by opportunities in and outside of school.
