How Strong Are Your MLs' First Language Literacy Skills?
Assess recently arrived MLs' first language literacy skills. That will help you make some of the important first decisions!
Does the student already know how to read well in their first language?
Does the student not have first language literacy and need to acquire the basic reading skills as they are also learning English?
Then, they will of course need to learn a lot of English vocabulary, but they will be able to use linguistic and literacy concepts learned in their first language to learn their second language, English!
Then, they need to work on building foundational literacy skills and will need a lot more explicit instruction and guided support.
