THE ENGLISH LEARNER PROGRAM AT LINCOLN ALTERNATIVE

The English Learner Program is designed to help students learn English while also assisting them in learning the academic material. The Program consists of many parts which includes English Language Development (ELD) daily lessons, Rosetta Stone, Skills Intervention Program, Instructional Assistants, After School Homework Help, After School Rosetta Stone, and our parent support program under PIQE (Parent Institute for Quality Education). Below is a brief overview of each component.

English Language Development (ELD) daily lessons - All English Learners are provided 30 minutes daily with lessons in learning English. These lessons may be conducted by the classroom teacher or by another classroom teacher as we may cluster students based upon their English language skills.

Rosetta Stone - This is a computer program that steps students through learning English. The program uses images, sentences and recorded information to lead students through lessons. The lessons may sometimes have them type words or sentences, click next to or below images or say words, phrases or sentences into the microphone which the program evaluates for clarity. The program slowly moves the child from one level to another.

Skills Intervention Program - The program is conducted by a credentialed teacher. She works with all other teachers in grades 1-6. Each grade level is given a daily time slot. The classroom teachers identify academic skills to be covered and which students will attend. The program's teacher then provides instruction on those skills for the identified students. Communication between the program teacher and classroom teachers is ongoing.

Instructional Assistants - There are two instructional assistants at Lincoln Alternative who work 3 1/2 hours daily. One instructional assistant is assigned to the kindergarten while the other is assigned by administration based on needs of classrooms. Their focus is on helping students with academic skills.

After School Homework Help - A credential teacher oversees this with assistance to students in grades 1-3 on Mondays and Thursdays and students in grades 4-6 on Tuesdays.

After School Rosetta Stone - A credential teacher oversees this opportunity for students to use Rosetta Stone after school.

Parent Support Program under PIQE (Parent Institute for Quality Education) - This program is operated in conjunction with the school with sessions give by the outside agency. The nine week (one day per week) sessions are taking place in the Fall.

Please contact your child's teacher should you wish more information about any of these items. Thank you.
