    This article really hit close to home for me, as I reflect on teaching newcomers to the U.S. (and also newcomers to Malaysia from China and Korea, when I was teaching there):

    Attention 6th grade ELA teachers looking to engage and motivate your ELL readers!

    WestEd, a non-profit research and development organization, is conducting research on LoomVue, a web application which transforms any webpage into a mix of Spanish and English text, allowing ELL students to read interesting and advanced content rather than oversimplified elementary-style books.

    The purpose of the study is to determine student reading comprehension and vocabulary knowledge gains after using LoomVue and garner insights into teachers' impressions of the product.  During the study, teachers will be asked to have their students complete 40 minutes of ‘free reading’ using the LoomVue tool and 30 minutes of studying vocabulary words on the LoomVue website per week, for 8 weeks.  Participating teachers will receive up to $500 for completion of all study activities! 

    To participate, teachers must:  

    • a) be a 6th grade ELA teacher of Spanish-speaking ELD students
    • b) have approximately 10-20 Spanish-speaking EL students enrolled in your classroom, and
    • c) have students with 1:1 access to internet connected computers or laptops.

    If you are interested in participating in the study or learning more, please fill out an interest form:  https://tinyurl.com/LoomVuePilotStudy 

    Thank you!
