Pathway to Academic Success (Pathway Project)
English Language Learners

The Pathway to Academic Success Project has potentially positive effects on writing quality, writing conventions, and literacy achievement for students in grades 6 – 12 compared with business-as-usual professional development and English language arts instruction.
The Pathway to Academic Success Project trains teachers to improve the reading and writing abilities of English learners who have an intermediate level of English proficiency by incorporating cognitive strategies into reading and writing instruction. The cognitive strategies include goal setting, tapping prior knowledge, asking questions, making predictions, articulating and revising understanding of text, and evaluating writing.
