Multilingual Service Model

Multilingual Service Model

Each school in ISD 622 provides ML services through a combination of service models. Students are provided service through the most appropriate service model based on a combination of factors, including school site programming, student population, grade level, language proficiency levels, and individual student needs. 

The service models used in ISD 622 schools include:

  • Co-taught content courses

  • Small group instruction - pull out from the classroom

  • Small group instruction - push into the classroom

  • Sheltered Instruction - content-based (English Language Development) 

  • English Language Development (ELD) - focused on newcomers, RAELs, and/or SLIFE (Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking)

ML teachers work with building and district administration to create a service schedule that provides content-based language instruction using any combination of the service models above.
