Lee County Schools English Language Program
Specifically Designed Academic Instruction in English
Content teachers provide instruction that simultaneously introduces both language and content, using specialized techniques to accommodate ELs’ linguistic needs. Instruction focuses on the teaching and learning of academic content rather than the English language itself, even though the acquisition of English may be one of the instructional goals.
Students can waive supplemental services provided by an ESL teacher, but cannot waive the core program provided by content teachers.
