Filling the Gap for ELL students
Read about how Emily Francis is using WriteReader with her ELL students.
Personally and culturally writing
Check out this dual language book created by Emily Francis and her ELL students, who embrace and validate the students’ background and culture.
With this last Emily Francis quote, we wish all ELL students and their teachers a stunning and happy writing time with WriteReader.
“Culture and diversity can’t be measured in a classroom; however, it can be noticed. When students are reading and writing about topics that they connect with personally and culturally, they are engaged at a deeper level.”
