At Bensley Elementary School, we take pride in our ESOL program. Our team strives to provide the happy, nurturing, comfortable learning environment that is a must when working to acquire a second language.
The primary goal of the ESOL program in CCPS is to help students develop speaking and literacy skills in English, in order to be successful in general education classes.
ESOL MODELS OF INSTRUCTION
Collaboration: The ESOL teacher works with the ESOL students in the general education classroom.
General Education: The regular education teacher provides instruction using modifications, accommodations and/or alternative assessments.
Pullout Instruction: New speakers are pulled from the general education classroom to spend time with an ESOL teacher.
Monitoring: The ESOL teacher monitors academic progress and support is given through the general education classroom teacher.
