Students will now be able to check these books out of the ELL library to take home. Students need to have hands-on materials to increase their independent reading stamina at home, and many students do not have access to engaging books at their reading level. Graphic novels are a wonderful choice for English Language Learners (ELLs), as they provide a picture rich environment, while simultaneously exposing students to higher level vocabulary. This proposal will improve student learning, development and thinking skills by exposing ELL students to the same strategies that they are already familiar with through the Fountas & Pinnell Reader's Workshop model (already embedded and implemented during the Eastern Heights literacy block). The supplemental materials requested in this proposal will boost the comprehension levels of those whose first language is not English. Getting books in the hands of our ELL students will contribute to that learning by supplementing available literature in a small group setting, reinforcing comprehension of academic vocabulary necessary to access grade level science, social studies, math and reading content taught in their mainstream classes. Second language acquisition for our Karen, Somali, Hmong, Amharic, Oromo and Spanish-speaking students can take from 5-7 years to occur at a native language-like proficiency level. The resources requested in this grant proposal can directly, immediately and easily be accessed by ELL students for take home reading opportunities.
