The Getting Results (GR) and Opportunities through Language Arts (OLA) links in the menu feature videos that have been produced as part of research and development efforts to improve academic achievement among English language learners (ELLs). The Classroom Videos link contains 9 videos of elementary grade language arts lessons. These are not necessarily exemplary or model lessons; however they illustrate the sort of instruction that can be seen in elementary classrooms with large numbers of ELLs. All videos are hosted by YouTube.

Transcripts and Discussion Questions are available in PDF format for some of the videos. If you do not have a program on your computer to view PDF files, you can download Adobe Reader here.
