This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the reading achievement for EL students.
  2. the impact of pull-out reading interventions for EL students.
  3. instructional programs that support EL students' reading achievement.


English learners (ELs) are one subgroup of students that require special attention, particularly because of their growing numbers and low-performance relative to their non-EL peers. Using a nationally representative database, the study examined the effects of language of instruction and pull-out small group reading interventions on the reading achievement of ELs. Results provided evidence that the language of instruction emerged as a significant predictor in the student's reading performance.
