Abstract

The population of English Language Learners (ELL) have reached an all time high, over the past decade. There has been an abundance need of teachers that are certified with Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). The percentage of students that are English Language Learners (ELL) are 9.5%, with other western states in the United States, there is a percentage as high as 16.8%. There is limited training for classroom teachers to be a resource for English Language Learners, this review of literature will provide a resource of information that will be useful for preservice and in-service teachers. There needs to be a national program that teachers have to go through and get certified, in order to get them prepared for the possibility of having a ELL student in their classroom. I will find resources from online articles, books, and primary resources, from student teaching, that have theories on ways that school systems can improve the resources that ELL students need. I will interpret and analyze the statistics and data from these sources, then create a plan that schools should implement in all traditional classrooms. With the data that I find and analyze, it will be a compilation of comparisons between ELLs and native English Learners.
