Southwest English Learner Literacy

REL Southwest is partnering with educators across New Mexico to improve English learner student literacy. The Southwest English Learner Literacy (SWELL) partnership will study the Write to Succeed professional learning program to help teachers improve their literacy instruction. Teachers within a school will participate in Write to Succeed as a school-based team as they learn about evidence-based literacy practices and are supported to integrate those practices within existing instructional units.

REL Southwest will integrate two supports that were developed and initially piloted in New Mexico as part of a prior partnership. Specifically, the focus on effective literacy practices will be enhanced by integrating support for effective teacher peer collaboration, and the delivery approach will be enhanced to support teachers with practicing culturally and linguistically responsive instruction through role-play before implementing the routines in the classroom with students. Logic model is in development.
