All young learners, including English Language Learners (ELL) students, English as a Second Language (ESL) students, and other Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students and struggling readers, can benefit greatly from GrapeSEED.
All student subgroups
GrapeSEED improves literacy for all students including at-risk and high-performing students. The average students score higher and the high performing students improve further, resulting in higher school performance scores.
All limited English proficiency learners
It teaches LEP and ELL / ESL students to communicate effectively using Standard English. It does so by focusing on oral language acquisition.
All four skills, reading, writing, listening and speaking, are very important. In order for students to really learn a language it is important they produce the language in meaningful ways, in every minute of every class. They begin to think in Standard English, which is necessary for fluency.
