►What is Sheltered Instruction?  
Sheltered Instruction is a teaching style founded on the concept of providing meaningful instruction in the content areas (social studies, math, science, language arts) for transitioning Limited English Proficient (LEP) students towards higher academic achievement while they reach English fluency.

What is the goal of Sheltered Instruction?
Sheltered Instruction is an approach to teaching English Language Learners that integrates language and content instruction.  The dual goals of Sheltered Instruction are to:
  • provide access to mainstream, grade level content; and
  • promote the development of English language proficiency

►What is the difference between ESL instruction and the use of Sheltered Instruction?  
Sheltered Instruction does not focus entirely on language development; instead through the process of varied curriculum methods English proficiency is achieved.
