English Language Learners
Publications and Research
This policy report, co-released by the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) and the Center on Enhancing Early Learning Outcomes (CEELO), discusses trends in enrollment, funding, and quality standards, as well as English Language Learner and Special Education students, in state-funded pre-K between 2001-2002 and 2011-2012.
This poster presentation from NIEER Assistant Research Professors Alissa Lange and Kimberly Brenneman discusses the SciMath-DLL project designed to develop, and carry out preliminary testing of a pre-K professional development approach that integrates high-quality math and science instructional offerings with supports for dual language learners.
This presentation looks at the rates in which children who are Hispanic and/or English language learners enroll in preschool and the impact of pre-K on their learning outcomes.
This brief addresses issues of preschool access and quality that are specific to Hispanic children but which can also apply to some other largely disadvantaged and immigrant groups.
At the Head Start National Research Conference in Washingon, DC, NIEER Director Steve Barnett spoke on instruction for English language learners in preschool education classrooms.
