Core ESOL classes such as this one are taught via one of two models : 1 .) In a sheltered class model , the class ( size limited to a maximum set by the state ) is composed solely of ELLs and taught by a teacher who holds the content area certification as well as the ESOL Endorsement or ESOL ( P-12 ) certification . 2 .) In a Push-in model – students receive content instruction from a teacher certified in that content area with a collaborating ESOL certified teacher who provides language assistance for ELLs in the class . The curriculum follows the GPS of the general education content course but integrates the WIDA Standards and differentiates instruction and tasks to accommodate second language learners .

A Composite Proficiency Level of 3 or higher with a strong proficiency score in Reading , is suggested for ELLs taking content area classes . English Language Learners ( ELLs ) are likely to experience success on the End-of-Course-Tests if they have an ACCESS for ELLS Composite Proficiency Level ( CPL ) of 4.3 – 4.8 combined with a strong Reading proficiency score .

Pre-Requisite : 9 ^{th} grade or higher standing

Terms Offered : Fall and Spring - but depends upon the needs of ELL population based on English Language Proficiency levels balanced with other criteria including individual student age , graduation needs , motivation , work habits , and minimum class sizes .

Grade Levels : 9 - 12 Units of Credit : 1.0

Quality Points : 0.5 Course #: 27.09900

Course Title : ESOL GSE Algebra I

Course Description : Typically the first core math class for most ELLs , the fundamental purpose of Algebra I is to formalize and extend the mathematics that students learned in the middle grades . The critical areas , organized into units , deepen and extend understanding of functions by comparing and contrasting linear , quadratic , and exponential phenomena . The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and , together with the content standards , prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent , useful , and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations .
