Access to Curriculum and High Quality Instruction for Educators Valuing English Learners
NE Ohio ACHIEVE is funded by a five-year National Professional Development grant awarded to the Department of Curricular & Instructional Studies in the College of Education and the Department of English in the Buchtel College of Arts and Sciences from the U.S. Department of Education. The focus of the grant is on increasing the proficiency of teachers who work with English learners (ELs), particularly early childhood and elementary level teachers. The grant objectives align with the following goals:
- Improve effective instruction of ELs in NE Ohio by providing professional development focused on research-based literacy strategies to teachers and administrators;
- Increase the number of in-service teachers who complete the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Endorsement; and
- Improve relationships between schools and parents/families in select schools with high populations of ELs.
