Take the guesswork out of teaching language
All early educators want to see their students learn and grow. Developing their language skills is a crucial area of growth. Research has shown several teaching strategies that teachers of very young children can use in all kinds of classroom activities to see significant changes in their students’ language abilities.
ExCELL empowers early educators to set all students up for learning and reading success, especially dual language learners.
