A new program that is being offered to all ELD students at Mandela High School. This program will be run by students from the University of California, Berkeley and focus on improving the English skills, in particular, grammar, vocabulary and reading. The benefits of this program include more one-on-one time, different teaching strategies, and a more interactive classroom. The program will take place from 12-4PM in a nearby location (to be determined soon).
The reason that this program is so beneficial for your students is because it will help them get out of the ELD program. The ELD program does not include college prep classes, thus, the students are not on track to go to college after graduation. We hope to help students reach college prep courses and set them on an academic track through this program.
