Putting Research into Action
The Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Northwest partners with stakeholders in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington on using data and evidence to improve educational equity and student success.

A cross-REL resource offers activities that the families of young English learner students can use to build on students' home language to help them develop their English skills.


How Educators Can Build Students' Early Literacy Skills

Whether teaching online or in person, educators in Alaska and elsewhere can consider using the research-based recommendations illustrated in this resource to build literacy skills among young learners.
