Secondary Newcomer Programs Are Invited to Share Their Data

The Center for Applied Linguistics has published a database that includes descriptions of more than 60 programs for English-language learners who are newcomers to the country at the middle or high school level. The programs listed educate immigrant and refugee students in 23 different states.

If you're involved with a secondary newcomer program, which typically serves ELLs for a short stint upon arrival in the United States, it's not too late to have your program described in the database. Click here to complete the survey. If you prefer to fill out a paper version of the survey, send an e-mail requesting one to Beverly Boyson at [email protected]

The Center for Applied Linguistics collected the data as part of a research study of newcomer programs operating during the 2008-09 school year funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. I've blogged previously about preliminary data. The center plans to publish a summary of the study on its Web site next month.
