How Language Tree Online Helps English Learners Succeed
As the teacher, you are the pilot and our program is the co-pilot! Use our program as often as you like to support your instruction. Our program can be used for both in-class and remote learning. Students can learn and practice anywhere using any connected device.
Language & Content
Our program employs sheltered instructional strategies (SIOP & SDAIE) and integrates language instruction with subject matter content in math, science, and social studies. Multi-sensory support helps students better understand lesson input.
We offer our American School Culture module to help build confidence, functional vocabulary, and knowledge about their new school environment for newcomers.
Standards-based online formative assessments identify specific language gaps, so you know where to focus instructional time. Summative assessments after program completion show learning growth and help indicate which skills still need to be developed.
We provide downloadable instructional routines to support small group or whole-class instruction. Also included are printable worksheets for students to practice, sample schedules, and language notebooks.
Reporting & Tracking
Class and district-level reporting gives teachers and administrators visibility to assessment scores, student progress, and where students may be falling out.
