Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine an effective educational model for teaching language to English Language Learners as well as to determine effective instructional methods within the mainstream classroom. The study aimed to assess the effectiveness of the Integrated Services Approach. This approach involved a classroom teacher, an English Language specialist, a Special Education teacher, and a reading interventionist. All four educators taught ten English Language Learners within a mainstream classroom. The ten English Language Learners were periodically assessed to determine academic growth and language acquisition level. Assessment data suggests that the Integrated Services Approach is an effective educational model for teaching language to English Language Learners.
