Research validating sheltered instruction

Colorín Colorado is a website serving educators and families of English language learners (ELLs) in Grades Pre K-12.

The differences between ESL instruction and the use of sheltered instruction or SDAIE is that sheltered instruction does not focus entirely on language development; instead, through various other topics or actual content material in the curriculum, English proficiency is achieved.

Students in classrooms all across America, more than ever before, stand to benefit immensely from research-based instructional approaches and informed mindset (principles and beliefs) in the education of our ever-growing ELL population.

Sheltered instruction is an approach to teaching English language learners which integrates language and content instruction.

This method type is often used in mainstream secondary classrooms where the students have a foundation of English education.
