This is the introduction: In K-12 public schools, educators identify students whose native or home language is not English as English language learners (ELLs) or limited English proficient (LEP) students. These students include both foreign-born and U.S.-born students reared speaking a language other than English. ELLs can receive either traditional ESL instruction, which has English as the subject matter, or content-based ESL instruction, which focuses on teaching English through grade-level content. According to History of Teaching English as a Second Language, it states, “Throughout the history of this country we have grappled with the problem of how to teach those who do not speak the common language; we have wrestled with the question of what the common language should be”(National Counsil of Teachers of English, 40).
