English Language Education (ELE) Program

The Nauset English Language Education (ELE) program is available to students who speak a language other than English at home. Nauset has a growing population of English Learners (ELs) and we feel very fortunate to have students from all over the world in our schools.

Our licensed ESL teachers provide EL students with the necessary support to achieve language proficiency and success within and beyond the school walls. Through a combination of in-class and pull-out model, our students practice all four language domains (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

ESL teachers work together with classroom teachers to develop Sheltered English Instruction (SEI) lessons that promote content and language development. SEI instruction includes approaches, strategies, and methodologies that make the content of the lesson more comprehensible to students who are not yet proficient in English.

Our program also aims to provide parents with the information they need from school in their language. We offer interpreters for school meetings and some of our ESL teachers are also bilingual.

If you would like to learn more about our ELE program please contact our district coordinator, Carina Da Silva, at (508) 255-0380 ext. 112 or email dasilvac@nausetschools.org
