The research question addressed in this capstone project is: How can ninth grade English Language Arts curriculum be designed to integrate language and content instruction to support academic English proficiency for English Learners using a co-teaching model? The paper provides an in-depth literature review on both academic language development and co-teaching. Topics of this paper are: long-term English language learners (LTELs) in the mainstream, academic and language standards, content instructional models for secondary English language learners which includes co-teaching practices and building academic language. Following this paper, a supplemental curriculum for ninth grade English language arts was created in order to fuse content and language instruction. This supplemental curriculum was designed to better meet the needs of English learners in a mainstream co-taught classroom. Included in the project are one unit of supplemental curriculum; lesson templates with content and language objectives, key vocabulary, scaffolds and supports; instructional materials; and finally, co-teaching models that can be used effectively between ELA and EL teachers serving LTELs.
