This paper explains how ELL students (English language learners) have a higher potential to fail in school, particularly those from rural poor areas for many reasons. The paper examines what methods appear to work better for ELL to effectively acquire mastery of the English language. The paper researches this question and concludes that English language acquisition among rural students in the South Bronx is best facilitated through a community based learning methodology. Such a method is more likely to take into consideration the students' culture and familial background, which studies suggest are vital to English language acquisition in the classroom.

From the Paper:

"According to recent studies published by the National Clearinghouse for Bilingual Education (2002) more and more students are entering the U.S. public school system with languages other than English as their primary language (Mohr 18). Rapid proficiency of the English language is often very difficult, though many schools tend to focus on this rather than focus on finding effective teaching strategies or the most appropriate instruction for ELL's (Mohr 18). It is vital that educators find ways to better instruct and support ELL's using "an invigorated approach" that maximizes language acquisitions and encourages strong commitment from teachers and students (Mohr 18)."
