E.N.L (English as a New Language)

 English as a

New Language

at  P.S. 205

The  mission of the English as a New Language (ENL) program at P.S. 205 is to support  language development of  the English Language Learners (ELL) in a socially , culturally, and an academically supportive environment.

Once a newly enrolled student enters into P.S. 205  an ENL teacher will determine if the student needs to take  an exam called NYSITELL (New York State Identification Test for English Language Learners  based on the HLIS (Home Language Identification Survey)and interviews. Results from the NYSITELL will determine your childs' entitlement.

P.S. 205  utilizes the push-in model in which the ENL teachers work collaboratively with classroom teachers. Together, they develop  strategies and  modify lessons to help the students' acquisition of English. English language instruction focuses on listening, speaking, reading, and writing in langauge arts and other content areas. Students work one-on-one with the ESL teacher or in a small group. This type of instruction and model promotes academic success and allows our  ELL students to achieve proficiency on the NYSESLAT (New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test).  

In addition to the ESL push-in program provided during the school day, P.S.  205  provides a Title III After-School Program: ELL Academy . During these one hour sessions, teachers implement Award Reading to help increase the students' comprehension of academic language and improve in all for modalities: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
