Evaluation of Elementary ESOL Program in Title I Schools: Survey of ESOL Teachers


This brief presents findings from a 2008 survey of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) teachers. The purpose of the survey was to gather the ESOL teachers' perspective on how ESOL services were implemented in Title I schools during the 2007-2008 school year and to identify areas needing improvement.


  • Intensify instruction for English language development by allotting appropriate time for ESOL instruction.
  • Ensure the ESOL students' instructional schedule reflects the appropriate balance between instruction for English language development and instruction in reading/language arts.
  • Implement the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) ESOL curriculum consistently, including the corresponding formative common task assessments.
