The English language learner population on Long Island, New York, has been growing each year. As recently as 2010, over 28,000 Limited Language Proficient students (about 42% in New York State) have been enrolled in schools on Long Island (NYSED, 2010). Responding to the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students can be a challenge for general education teachers with little or no background in second language acquisitions, even if they genuinely wish to embrace ELLs and offer strong instructional supports.
