Welcome to the ESL Goes Mainstream Blog!

Welcome to the ESL Goes Mainstream blog! This blog is coordinated through the Educating Language Minority Students (ELMS) Project. The ELMS Project is a five-year grant funded through the Office of English Language Acquisition (OELA), Department of Education. Our mission is to provide professional development for in-service and pre-service teachers in North Carolina, ensuring that teachers in our community will be better prepared to improve academic outcomes for English Language Learners (ELLs) in their classrooms.

The key to success for both teachers and students is sharing in a community of learning and support. We hope this blog will provide a forum for a rich exchange of ideas and teaching strategies for supporting ELLs. We also want to share the progress of the ELMS Project with the ESL community in our state and beyond.
