Meeting the needs of English Language Learners
ELD (ELL) Courses
Both Launch’s elementary and secondary ELD courses utilize WIDA (WorldClass Instructional Design and Assessment) Can Do Descriptors that focus on the four domains of language instruction: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Students who have qualified as an EL student with the qualifications determined by the state of Missouri are provided many authentic opportunities to interact with language digitally. In addition, the courses focus on acceleration of language learning and deliver intentional instruction that builds each student’s academic language.
