Case Study on Closing the ELL Achievement Gap

At Alliance Jack H. Skirball Middle School in the Los Angeles Unified School District, students are learning academic English and gaining confidence through Middlebury Interactive’s English Language Learner curriculum. As the English Language Learner (ELL) Intervention Coordinator, Crystal McQueen runs an ELL intervention pullout program designed to narrow the gaps in English skills between her nonnative English language students and their peers. Every week Ms. McQueen works with 88 students in sixth through eighth grades during her 90-minute pullout period. The school’s goal is to help these students make real progress toward achieving fluency in academic English. The majority of Ms. McQueen’s students are Spanish speaking and are long-term ELLs—students who have immigrated to the US in the last three years or so, or who have lived in Mexico or elsewhere abroad and the US during their childhood.

Impact Beyond the Classroom

Ideally located in the nation’s capital, George Washington University’s Doctoral Program in Curriculum and Instruction prepares education leaders to improve preK–16+ education in local, national, and international settings. The coursework encourages critical thought and creative work through focusing on curriculum, instruction, and research, with additional courses and learning opportunities that link teaching and learning, policy, and evaluation to students’ prior experiences. Students can meet national leaders in education and participate in internships that expand horizons. The program focuses on how curriculum and instruction can be constructed and applied to educational reform and diverse student populations. Students build research skills and study collaboratively, while staying grounded in the realities of schooling. Doctoral students become part of a community that links scholars with practicing professionals, policymakers, and educational organizations in Washington, DC, and beyond.
