Colorin Colorado for Educators This section of Colorín Colorado is a collaboration between Reading Rockets and the American Federation of Teachers.


Reaching Out to EL Students and Families In this section, you'll find ways to effectively reach out to English learners (ELs) and their families. All of these suggestions share the ultimate goal of improving your students' English, literacy, and academic achievement.


Learning About Your Student's Backgrounds  The more you learn about where your students come from, the easier your job will become. This includes learning more about their language, culture, values, family, and home environment. This knowledge will help you to better support your students in the classroom and to receive more support from home. There are many ways to make this linguistic and cultural diversity a huge asset. Your efforts will also make EL students feel more welcome.


How to Reach Out to Parents of ELs   English learners (ELs) benefit just as much from their parents' involvement in their education as other students. Some Hispanic parents may feel apprehensive about getting involved because of their limited English skills, lack of familiarity with mainstream culture and the public school system in the United States.
