    Others viewed SEI as synonymous with specially designed academic instruction in English SDAIEalso known as sheltered instruction, which features an array of strategies designed to help students of intermediate or higher proficiency access grade-level subject matter Aha! On the other hand, a student may be thrown into a class where all of the students already speak English, hence the "sink or swim" program moniker. And so, writing seventeen years later, I wonder, like so many others, why when we know what we know, do we not take corrective actions? There is no doubt that many bilingual education programs succeed in teaching Spanish at no cost to learning English when compared to the sink or swim setting. It takes advantage of the powerful effect of massed verses spaced trails on learning see Baker, or Rossell and Baker,

    On the other hand, if all we know are the ethnic groups, these predictions cannot be made with perfection. Ramirez5 has the most extensive discussion of the characteristics of SEI. The only hypothesized difference among the programs to occur in actual practice was the percentage of instructional time teachers taught in English as opposed to Spanish. What grades are offered this program at Cahuenga? This book is an excellent resource for those schools and districts struggling to implement the best SEI program for their LEP students. Final report: Longitudinal study of structured immersion strategy, early-exit, and late-exit transitional bilingual education programs for language-minority children.

    The SEI students scored significantly higher on all tests for 11 straight years. Students are overtly taught English pronunciation and listening skills; word building; word-order rules; a wide range of vocabulary synonyms, antonyms, survival vocabulary, academic word groups ; and formulaic expressions not easily explained by grammar analysis "There you go again"; "What's up with that? This book is an excellent resource for those schools and districts struggling to implement the best SEI program for their LEP students. Therefore, student performance is unaffected by the difference in use of English between the Early Exit programs and the Immersion programs.

Progress in any language other than English does not count. Instead, there is now an unprecedented opportunity gap — young DLLs are being shut out of valuable academic and biliteracy development experiences.

Again, by some standards, that makes bilingual education an effective program -- it is developing two languages-- but it doesn't count as success in the USA because the courts have ruled that only progress in English matters.

Martin Ramirez, principal of a Yuba City, California, high school that has gained national attention for its SEI program, puts the language-content issue this way: We are charged with giving our ELLs a rigorous core content curriculum that is comparable to their English-speaking peers. By some standards, that makes bilingual education a very effective program, but it doesn't count as success in the USA because the courts have ruled that only accelerated progress in English matters.

As I have worked with educators, school boards, and the Arizona English Language Learners Task Force to explore, design, and implement structured programs, a common theme emerges: These programs have the potential to accelerate ELLs' English language development and linguistic preparation for grade-level academic content.

Less clear, however, is the optimal pathway for helping language-minority students master English. A third factor is the burgeoning subpopulation of ELL students who reach an intermediate level of English competence after a few years—and then stop making progress.
