Project DELTA, UF researchers seek to change ESOL education
UF COE faculty researchers Ester de Jong and Maria Cody were quoted in a Gainesville Sun article about the link between UF’s elementary teacher preparation program and ESOL students’ achievement in the classroom and on the FCAT. The number of non-English speaking students placed in mainstream classrooms in Florida rises each year, and the way teachers-in-training learn to educate those students could be changing.
