The Effects of Sheltered Instruction on the Achievement of Limited English Proficient Students

Jana Echevarria, California State University, Long Beach

This project:

1) developed an explicit model of sheltered instruction;

2) used that model in four large urban districts to train teachers in effective sheltered strategies; and

3) conducted field experiments and collected data to evaluate teacher change as well as the effects of sheltered instruction on LEP students' reading achievement and English language development.
