Abstract

High-school-aged English Language Learners with a score of four on the Oregon ELPA often demonstrate a high level of fluency in colloquial language, but may continue to be placed in ELD classes due to difficulties with usage of academic language in content area courses. The purpose of this study is to examine manners in which students’ communicative competence can be developed to reach high levels of academic language usage. The implementation of conversational strategies used in ELA courses is linked with real-world and high-interest topics. This becomes an authentic application of academic language within the curriculum.
