AP/English Learner Connection


To create opportunities for ELL learners to build confidence based on language skills.


ELL students will feel empowered as the relative experts when allowed to demonstrate linguistic competence in their native language.

Action Steps

Create connections between AP students with ELL students. For example, bring AP Spanish students to meet with and do a project with a class of primarily Spanish -speaking ELL freshmen or sophomores. Create an activity where the ELL students can demonstrate leadership within this context and improve their confidence, as well as foster connection with AP students.
