Capstone Project Title
Dr. Jennifer Carlson & Dr. Kelly Killorn-Moravec
Improving achievement of English learners (ELs) requires districts to examine the effectiveness of their EL programs, a measure required by Federal Title III law. This capstone project examines how might an EL program review toolkit, including an analysis of data, policies, practices, and beliefs, shape an EL program? To answer this question, a program evaluation toolkit was created to help leaders of EL programs analyze the effectiveness of their EL programs. Leading a team of teachers through the EL program toolkit, the author and team analyzed qualitative and quantitative data, identified an area of growth, and created a vision and plan to improve the EL program in their suburban high school in Minnesota. The EL toolkit allowed the team to create a more culturally proficient program, and in turn, potentially increased graduation and academic outcomes for ELs.
