Revolutionary Breakthrough in Personalized Instruction for English Language Learners

Renzulli English Language Learning Accelerator (ELLA) leverages the proven student achievement principles of Renzulli Learning and applies them to English Language Learning (ELL).

There are nearly 5 million ELL students in the USA and they are the fastest growing segment of the public school population.

Research demonstrates that ELL Learners achieve higher achievement scores when educators use personalized instruction and collaborative grouping with native English-speaking peers.

Nearly 90 percent of ELL students are enrolled in programs in their schools, but few receive personalized instruction.
