Staff Directory | Event Calendar


The English Language Learners (ELL) Program at Linn-Mar is designed to help students acquire the English Language. We work with students whose first language is not English, or who speak more than one language at home. We currently are working with students from 20 different countries, speaking 25 different languages.

The Linn Mar District has ELL services at all 10 schools. Students are able to attend their neighborhood school, and the ELL teachers travel from building to building. The ELL teachers work to help support students in the general education classrooms along with teaching skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in English.

At the elementary level, students spend most of their day in the classroom with their English speaking classmates, with some daily small group instruction time for English Language instruction. During small group instruction, students work on the five areas of language: speaking, listening, reading, writing, and comprehension. The elementary ELL curriculum is content based, and students work on language acquisition through the areas of science and social studies.

At the middle school and high school students spend one period or more a day in ELL class where we use a research based curriculum and a combination of other materials to work on reading, writing, speaking, listening, and comprehension. We also work closely with the content teachers to assist students in comprehension and completing assignments.
