This document is the third in a series of briefs for school leaders, educators, and policymakers charged with implementing or supporting multi-tiered instruction that meet the needs of English learners (ELs). In this brief, three model demonstration projects share their framework for the successful design and delivery of core and supplemental literacy instruction for kindergarten to grade 3 ELs who receive literacy instruction in English only. This brief provides guidance to educators in preparing and delivering English instruction for ELs and in framing supports for classroom teachers that ensure culturally and linguistically responsive core and supplemental English literacy instruction.
