How to Participate
We ask that a school district representative work with us and with teachers to confirm that they are willing and able to follow the study design. This includes a lottery to determine which teachers will receive the training first. We are looking for partnering school districts that have the following characteristics:
- Schools are willing to be chosen by lottery to teach DISE or their own program in the first and second year of participation.
- The district and school administration has an interest in using an evidence-based curriculum that teaches oral English language to ELs.
- Schools will deliver ELD instruction for 45 - 55 minutes daily.
- Each school must have at least 10 EL students in grades 6-7 with limited oral English proficiency.
