MoE document on welcoming ELLs into FSL programs

September 14, 2016 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

Welcoming ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS into FRENCH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE Programs is a 2016 Ministry document.

From page 3: 

“It not only describes the benefits of FSL education for English language learners but also addresses the misconception that FSL programs are too difficult for English language learners and reinforces how current FSL teaching strategies can meet the learning needs of these students.”

From page 8, summarizing  the research/key findings on this subject:

  • English language learners benefit from FSL.
  • English language learners perform as well as, or better than, English-speaking students in FSL
  • Mindsets may be based on misconceptions, and may negatively affect access to programs

You have to read pages 10- 13 to discover some strategies that would best support  ELL students!

Check it out! Rowan
