WELCOME TO THE RESOURCES FOR EDUCATORS SERVING ELLs.

You are welcome to use the site, but don't request membership. Only the ESL course instructors for courses taught through the Illinois Resource Center are members.

This WIKI was developed by Jeanette Gordon initially for the instructors who are teaching the course Methods and Materials for ESL with the Illinois Resource Center. However, since the resources would be helpful to all educators serving ELLs, it is now used to provide support resources for the participants taking the class as well as others attending some of the IRC workshops. The focus is on methods and materials for ELLs. The instructional strategies can be applied in any setting. However, for support on program design and literacy instruction in bilingual settings, Illinois educators can contact the Illinois Resource Center for support. www.thecenterweb.org/irc Jeanette specializes in ESL methods and differentiated instruction in classes with English language learners.
