Roud Student Teacher E3d Wf286365

Many of our multilingual learners are orally fluent in English but need targeted academic language support to experience success in school. For these students, the key to acceleration is combining engaging content with explicit instruction and structured academic interactions. That’s where English 3D comes in.

English 3D was designed by nationally recognized ELD author, researcher, and teacher educator, Dr. Kate Kinsella. The program effectively accelerates the academic language of students in Grades 4–12 who are developing English proficiency.

The evidence-based instructional routines and relevant text sets in English 3D create a dynamic platform for daily speaking and writing, enabling students to become confident and competent participants in content-area classes, college, and beyond.

Provide an asset-based pathway to success

Multilingual learners have a wealth of strengths to offer their classrooms and communities. When they come to school, they bring linguistic and cultural knowledge that are assets we can leverage when teaching. English 3D is specifically designed to meet these students’ needs with culturally responsive instruction, relevant topics and texts, and structured peer interactions.
