English Language Learners

Grand View University received a $2.75 million grant to enhance their ESL endorsement. We are offering a cutting-edge program that will prepare you to meet the needs of culturally diverse students in your classroom.

Our ELL Program is uniquely designed with funding from a U.S. Department of Education, National Professional Development grant. This program requires alignment with the What Works Clearinghouse IES Practice Guide recommendations. These are evidence-based practices shown to be effective with English Learners.

Even if you aren’t in one of the partnering school districts for the National Professional Development grant you can take advantage of the rich learning opportunities. The courses are offered completely online.

You can take the courses for graduate or undergraduate credit. Those choosing graduate credit will be on the road to earning your Master’s Degree
