English Language Learner Services


Welcome to the 
Cottage Grove Middle School 
site for 
English Learners!




How we service our students:    
Co-teaching:  
It is our goal to keep students in the most inclusive environment with full access to the curriculum that is available to all students.  Most of our instruction is done through co-teaching, in which there are two teachers in the classroom.  One teacher focuses on content, and the other focuses on language instruction through speaking, listening, reading, and writing. 
English Language Development:  
We work in small group settings to build students' academic language, vocabulary, and writing skills so that they can participate fully and be engaged in all of their classes.
