English Language Learning (ELL) for Secondary Students

English Language Learning (ELL)

For students entering into grade 8 from grade 7 please see ELL Transitions Course 

For students currently in grades 8 - 11

Summer Learning ELL courses are designed for students at levels 1-3 (beginning to consolidating) who are looking to practice and build upon their English reading, writing and oral language skills. 

Students in this course must be prepared to participate in a variety of dynamic and interactive activities, including listening, speaking, reading and writing. There will be an emphasis on speaking and social interactions, as well as an introduction to the academic language expected at the secondary school level. The overall nature of the course will be experiential; students will work through various learning engagements to develop  the skills and confidence needed for the English Language. 

Summer Learning teachers or administrators will NOT make placement recommendations to home schools. 

Secondary ELL classes are scheduled at Carson Graham Secondary School, 2145 Jones Avenue, North Vancouver BC.

A student's final report card will indicate "Meeting Expectations" or "Not Yet Meeting Expectations".
