ELLoquence® is a comprehensive digital curriculum for grades 6th-12th that blends high-tech instruction with hands-on, interactive activities that accelerates junior high and high school ELL students in becoming English proficient in one to two years.
With almost five million English Language Learners in the public education system, one of the biggest challenges that schools face is finding extensive, rigorous material written for students at varying levels of English proficiency. ELLoquence® was developed, designed, and vetted by our own teachers to provide a structure that gives their fellow professionals a strong level of support, making their jobs easier and more manageable. The result is more time with students and improved outcomes.
ELLoquence® allows students to become technologically literate and enables them to be competitive in the 21st Century workplace by fostering creative and critical thinking, problem-solving, communicating, and collaborating in their native language, as well as in English. Research has shown that students are more engaged when working with ELLoquence®; more engagement leads to better attendance, better completion rates, and better outcomes!
