    Welcome to ESOL at Piney Grove Middle School!  Here at Piney Grove, our English language learners receive two scheduled ESOL classes: a co-taught English Langauge Arts class and an ESOL literacy.  Ultimately our goal is to give each English language learner the skills he or she needs in order to achieve academic success in the American school system.  
    Push-In Delivery Model
    For a co-taught class, there are two teachers in the room.  There is one content teacher and one ESOL teacher.  Students receive both content and language instruction in specified content classes, including English Language Arts.
    ESOL Literacy
    In ESOL literacy, the ESOL teacher provides English support for the English language learner's academic classes.  In addition to this, we also work on improving students' social and academic language skills.  Various resources are used in this class including Power Up.         
    Additional Support
    Students may receive additional ESOL support in other content classes and/or homework help in the mornings before school starts, after school, or during Grizzly Time.  
     Below are a couple of presentations that shed light on the ESOL program.
