This paper discusses how English language learning in the United States has become increasingly complex, especially with the increasing influx of non-English speaking students and the legal focus upon equal opportunities and education for all. The paper further examines how this has been recognized indeed by the teaching profession in terms of providing special, sheltered programs by means of which foreign students can learn the language effectively and at their own pace.

From the Paper:

"Student engagement is a vital component of student learning. However, there are some diverse opinions regarding the optimal way in order to achieve this. According to the Alabama Federation Council for Exceptional Children (2010), for example, student engagement involves the process of selecting materials and tasks that are at an appropriate level for a specific set of student skills. Factors that play an important role here include the students' interests, prior knowledge, current skills levels, strategy use, processing skills, and task persistence. This is an important platform upon which cultural issues could potentially form part of the learning process. At the heart of student engagement is the requirement that students must learn by doing. Students receive a demonstration from teachers, for example, and subsequently demonstrate their own ability by practicing the skill themselves."
