ESOL Curriculum & Instruction in Middle School

The goal of the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program at Loiederman Middle School is to support students as they acquire language and master content. Guided by the WIDA standards and the Common Core State Standards, the ESOL program is designed to integrate language and content so that by the time students exit ESOL services, they are ready and able to master grade level content. Students refine their skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking through the study of the English language.

Students are assigned to courses based on their WIDA ACCESS score designation, as well as teacher recommendation. Possible courses include:
ESOL 1
ESOL 2
ESOL 3
ESOL 4/5
METS Reading
METS Math
Language of Math
ESOL Reading
ESOL English
ESOL Social Studies

Students who score between levels 1-3 also take many courses outside of the ESOL department, including math, science, social studies, art, music, dance, and PE/Health. Students who score between level 4-5 generally receive one ESOL course to support academic language, and take the majority of their other courses outside of the ESOL department.
