This study of an after school program for ELLs focuses on how to improve elementary ELLs' self-esteem. The sample (N=14) was taken from a rural/suburban elementary school where ELLs represent an extremely small portion of the student population. Students from grades K-5th grade attended a weekly after school ESL club for 8 weeks. Methods used to collect data included using a revised Rosenburg Self-Esteem Scale, observations, attendance records, questionnaires, and videotapes. Anecdotal evidence indicates that implementing an academic, culturally sensitive after school program that includes parents can help increase ELLs global self-esteem.
