Description

The Center for Research on the Educational Achievement and Teaching of English Language Learners (CREATE) had a focused program of research designed to address
the critical challenge of improving educational outcomes of English learners in content area classrooms by

  • enhancing the empirical research base for readers in Grades 4–8,
  • developing and testing effective interventions that promote content knowledge and language and literacy development simultaneously,
  • investigating the features of instruction and scaffolds that facilitate learning for English learners in content area classrooms (e.g., oral language development, shared interactive reading, direct vocabulary instruction, traditional text v. modified text),
  • designing, testing, and delivering professional development that ensures that teachers implement effective classroom practices to help English learners achieve high standards,
  • and implementing a comprehensive school-wide intervention delivering curricula, professional development, and coaching sessions for content area teachers.
