Lessons Learned about the Literacy Instruction of English Language Learners from Several Research Studies :  Lessons Learned about the Literacy Instruction of English Language Learners from Several Research Studies Georgia Earnest García University of Illinois @ Urbana-Champaign International Research Association, May 2005 Slide2:  Purpose To aggregate qualitative findings from four research studies to discuss and identify positive and negative features of literacy instruction for English Language Learners (Mandarin, Spanish, Turkish speakers) Slide3:  1. Rationale for Purpose 2. Lit Review and Research Questions 3. List of Studies 4. Instructional Findings 5. Implications Rationale:  Rationale García (2000) called for longitudinal research on literacy development of English Language Learners in two languages that takes into account different types of instruction settings in which students are taught social and contextual factors Sociocultural Perspective :  Sociocultural Perspective Content (focus of instruction and activity definition) Process (how instruction is executed, timing, location) Social interactions Participants’ identities and motivation (Hernández, 1989; Moll, 1990; Tharp & Gallimore, 1988; Wersch, 1985) Review of instructional literature:  Review of instructional literature Whole class, teacher directed, passive instruction (Ramírez, Yuen, & Ramey,1991; Padrón, 1994) Untrained teachers, large class sizes (Moss & Puma, 1995) Combining literature-based instruction with quality ESL can be effective for strong L1 readers (Elley, 1991) Lit review cont.:  Lit review cont. Did not comprehend instruction or literacy assignments in all English settings (Brock, et al.; Schmidt, 1993). Early literacy activities seemed to work but lower vocab (Fitzgerald & Noblit, 2000), used sheltered instruction, but unexplained variability Effective use of ESL techniques to shelter storybook reading (Carger, 1993) Effective use of L1 support--preview, clarifications, participate in either language (Battle, 1993) Lit review cont.:  Lit review cont. Improved participation when allowed to use Spanish and English (Moll, et. al, 1980, 2001; Gutiérrez, et. al, 1997) CALLA, but not really tested yet (Chamot & O’Malley, 1996) Research Questions ::  Research Questions : 1. What characterizes the literacy instruction of English language learners in different instructional settings? 2. What factors influence students’ literacy instruction and development? 3. What are the positive and negative features of instruction for English language learners? List of Studies:  List of Studies 1st-2nd grade Spanish speakers’ literacy instruction in Spanish and ESL classes 1st-grade Turkish speakers’ oral language, literacy instruction and development in Turkish, ESL, all English Mandarin and Spanish speakers’ writing instruction and development (4, 5, 6th graders), L1, ESL, all English Spanish-speaking students’ ESL/English & Spanish reading instruction in an urban district (2, 3, 4th graders) Three lines of research involved Kent School:  Three lines of research involved Kent School Kent School (390 students, 130 ELLs from 13 countries Transitional program of study 30-45 minutes of L1 language instruction (Intl instructors) 30-160 minutes of ESL instruction (ESL/bilingual teachers) 105-225 minutes of all English instruction ((classroom teachers) 1. Two-year longitudinal, study of eight 1st- 2nd grade Spanish-speakers (García & López- Velásquez, 1998):  1. Two-year longitudinal, study of eight 1st- 2nd grade Spanish-speakers (García & López- Velásquez, 1998) (Activity setting theory, Tharp & Gallimore, 1998, and Gee’s Discourse analysis, 2002) - Formal and informal literacy instruction - Coordination of Spanish and ESL instruction - Year 1-Kent School (Spring); Year 2-Laurel School - Year 1 & 2: addtl 60 min. Sp. reading instruction Comparison of Spanish and ESL literacy instruction (year 1):  Comparison of Spanish and ESL literacy instruction (year 1) Spanish teacher (S. A.), EdM. Bilingual ed ESL teachers (US), certified, ESL (1), working on ESL (2) Cummins: introduce new concepts/activities in Sp., build on them in ESL Some overlap, but two different cultural worlds Spanish teacher’s instruction informed by cultural insights Comparison of Spanish and ESL literacy instruction (Spring, year 1):  Comparison of Spanish and ESL literacy instruction (Spring, year 1) Spanish (60 min.) Letter names, alphabet, word reading--vowels, syllables, fluent oral reading Choral reading and recitation of rhymes, poems, and songs Charts and booklets ESL (105 min.) Decoding, chunking, fluent reading of connected text--varies by group and class (1, 2) Separate small group instruction; content-based ESL, small group Lots of books (1, 2) Spanish and ESL literacy instruction cont.:  Spanish and ESL literacy instruction cont. Spanish Teacher read aloud once/week L2 features Thematic: occupations, seasons, food sources Content based Sp.: integrate reading, writing, listening, speaking-theme focus ESL Daily teacher read aloud (1, 2) L2 features Thematic (1, 2): frogs, space (1, 2), food groups Content-based ESL: integrate reading, writing, listening, speaking-science focus (1, 2) Spanish and ESL literacy instruction cont.:  Spanish and ESL literacy instruction cont. Spanish L2 features cont. Sheltered Spanish-Gestures, drawings, illustrations, drama, physical action Sheltered speech-simple, clearly enunciated, and slowed speech ESL L2 features cont. Sheltered English (1, 2) Gestures, drawings, illustrations, drama, physical action NOT for instructions (1, 2) Did not shelter speech (1, 2) Slide17:  Content-based ESL lesson: Thematic (1, 2) During 90 minutes: 5 different instructional activities Journal writing (a pond is a home two meny animals?) Teacher read aloud of Where is My Duckling? Display of names and drawings of animals prior to continued journal writing Placement of magnetic animals on pond drawing (near, on, in) Small group reading: read-stop-read approach Slide18:  Content-based ESL lesson: Thematic (1, 2) During 90 minutes: 5 different instructional activities Journal writing (a pond is a home two meny animals?) Teacher read aloud of Where is My Duckling? Display of names and drawings of animals prior to continued journal writing Placement of magnetic animals on pond drawing (near, on, in) Small group reading: read-stop-read approach Year 2 -Spanish instruction:  Year 2 -Spanish instruction New school--only L2 group with high income students 5 students from Year 1 (14 total) Same Spanish teacher; new ESL teacher (3) More books in Spanish, but not used Sp--still whole class instruction, focus on decoding, some dictated writing, no small groups/centers (S.A. influence) Some coordination with all-English classes but not ESL Year 2 -ESL instruction:  Year 2 -ESL instruction Reading groups (2) for 60 min. Content-based ESL (science/social studies) for 45 min.-develops oral vocabulary, reading, writing Writing to enter into reading (LEA) Teaches grammar through reading and based on journal writing Tapes the books and sends home books and tapes May use Spanish, check out Eng. & Sp. books Year 2 - Performance:  Year 2 - Performance Spanish rdg English *Ignacio strongest LS+ CR (2) LW *Felipe strong FS CR LW *José weak LS CR LW María weak LS LR LW Miguel non-reader FS LR LW Year 2 -ESL instruction:  Year 2 -ESL instruction “The ones who can read well and who have a lot of vocabulary [in Spanish] , they do a lot better….” “The free writing, that’s really hard for them, they do better with directed, ok, tell me this, and they’ll write it down.” 3rd grade recommendation: Ignacio and Felipe out of ESL except for 60 min. of ESL reading instruction. 2. Two Turkish first graders’ oral language and literacy instruction and development (Camlibel, 2005):  2. Two Turkish first graders’ oral language and literacy instruction and development (Camlibel, 2005) Cognitive, linguistic, and sociocultural perspectives L1, ESL, all English classrooms at Kent (Feb-June) Researcher directed summer tasks Turkish literacy in L1: Turkish instructional materials Emphasis on alphabet, decoding, chunking Reading extended text Turkish students:  Turkish students Both had problems with differences in alphabet Both had limited participation in all English class ESL classroom a haven Alp high participation in ESL high oral English proficiency could not decode in Turkish/English remedial” reading instruction of limited help (monolingual) Kindergarten in US (lacked metalinguistic awareness) Turkish students cont. :  Turkish students cont. Zehrah limited participant in ESL learned to decode in Turkish/English higher English reading than oral English proficiency kindergarten in Turkey did not separate literacy by context Combined Findings for 1st and 2nd graders:  Combined Findings for 1st and 2nd graders Some students benefit from simultaneous instruction; others don’t (L1 early literacy? Long term problems?) Benefit from content-based instruction on a theme that integrates reading, writing, speaking, listening Need sheltered English, even for seatwork Need better coordination between L1 and ESL instruction Only Spanish teacher emphasized students’ cultures Need more equitable funding, instructional time, personnel 3. Mandarin and Spanish speakers’ writing instruction and development (McCarthey & García, 2005; McCarthey, et al., 2004) :  3. Mandarin and Spanish speakers’ writing instruction and development (McCarthey & García, 2005; McCarthey, et al., 2004) Sociocultural, literate and cultural identities Two year longitudinal study 6 Mandarin and 5 Spanish speakers 4 schools (Kent School-Spring, year 1) 3 L1 classes, 2 ESL, 4 all English classrooms (Yr 1) Home and School (Yr 2) Year 1: Kent School:  Year 1: Kent School Similar type of content based ESL instruction ESL (1): Use writing to document and summarize science experiments ESL (1): Book reports ESL (4): Not hands on science, but content based Allow L1 oral use; L1 aide Limited use of process writing approach Year 1 cont.:  Year 1 cont.

IES study of cognitive strategy, responsive engagement in an urban district (García, et al., in progress; García, Pearson, Taylor with Bauer & Stahl):  4. IES study of cognitive strategy, responsive engagement in an urban district (García, et al., in progress; García, Pearson, Taylor with Bauer & Stahl) Mixed design Professional staff development Grades 2 & 3 (Spanish); Grades 4 (English- ESL/transitional) 11 of 14 teachers are Latina Some teachers are certified; some with ESL/bilingual Whole class, teacher directed instruction Literacy Instruction in Urban District:  Literacy Instruction in Urban District 2nd grade: 70% Spanish, 30% English >> 60% Spanish, 40% English; 4th grade: 20%, 80% >> 100% Not used to centers, literature circles, small groups Used poetry (2nd), basal (4th) Only English during ESL instruction (2nd and 4th) English immersion in bilingual classroom Concurrent translation No sheltering of English instruction Teacher opinions/complaints:  Teacher opinions/complaints Second graders would not orally participate in English literacy activities Fourth graders too dependent on teacher; would not work on own or with other students None/few of the students in 4th grade classrooms knew Spanish Changes:  Changes (Culturally different from other sites) Students participated more when could use Spanish Preview/review in Spanish of English text helped Encouraged to shelter English Teachers in cognitive strategy and responsive engagement were able to conduct small groups and students participated Instructional Implications:  Instructional Implications English literacy instruction needs to be designed for ELLs Sheltered English for beginning ELLs Coordinated with L1 instruction Need to know L1 development (and culture) Content-based ESL very helpful but addtl literacy instruction needed Small group, active instruction not whole class Encourage use of L1 for discussion, cont. reading, etc. Slide38:  L1 literacy instruction needs to incorporate high quality literacy activities (reading and writing) be based on L1 structure of language, culturally responsive sheltered L1 not needed Content based instruction helpful but separate literacy instruction also needed Small group, active instruction, not whole class Needs to be coordinated with ESL instruction Equitably treated--personnel, time, books, training Methodological Implications:  Methodological Implications Value to combining qualitative findings from same sites to get wider sociocultural perspective Value to comparing and contrasting findings from different sites Trade-off, lose richness and compelling details BUT, can begin to address major questions regarding possible variability in student performance, best practices, etc.
