Capstone Project Title
The research question addressed in this project was, how do educational stakeholders help to create a successful transition from middle school to high school for our long-term English learners? The author of this capstone documented her personal experience as a middle school teacher of long-term English learners who inspired her to research strategies and methods to help support students in their transition from middle school to high school. The available research on transitioning students from middle school to high school merged with English learner theories and research created a framework for a curriculum unit for eighth grade long-term English learners. This unit features various activities and lessons that help prepare students for a more successful transition into high school based upon four main learning objectives, including three academic language objectives.
