About this Grantee

After recognizing that their World English (WE) students—from Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria—are being inappropriately placed in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes, Ms. Rodriguez-McCleary and her team explore alternative programs that meet the special needs of WE students. The team collaborates with university researchers and community resource groups to investigate effective instructional strategies. This results shape the county’s policy on WE instruction and improve services for WE students.

I also teach students from these areas of the world. They are not ESL! I would love to know the details and outcomes of this program.
