ELL & High Scope

High/Scope Approach

High Scope is a program focused on active paticipartory learning. Teacher's are responsible for providing an environment that is rich with diverse materials, to stimulate children's cognitive abilities. Children chose to use the materials is ways that they see fit, while the teacher's take a supporting role during the child's play. Through this process, children are able to investigate items they are interested in, and come up with creative responses to what is being learned.

This approach is defnitely beneficial for student's who are still learning english. Because of the child-centered aspect, ELLs will be free to explore whatever interests them. The teacher can then take note of this, and use how they respond to the materials and information within the classroom to stem a relationship. This would in turn get these students to feel more comfortable in what could be an unfamiliar and uncomfortable setting.
