ESL Hiring Plan
All teachers of any foreign language instruction program for English Learners (ELs) need to be fluent and competent in the four domains of language accessed by the English Language Proficient Assessment: Reading, writing, speaking and listening. All teacher applications and applicants will be screened for fluency in all four domains.
- A teacher's fluency in listening and speaking will be documented and evaluated during the interview process. Interviewers will note mistakes, miscues, and grammar and syntax mistakes and make a determination of the level of fluency for both speech and listening.
- Reading will be evaluated by the candidate's reading and responses that show an understanding of the application process. This requirement may also be satisfied through college transcripts if through an English speaking University.
- Writing will be evaluated through a sample of writing produced on-site. This will ensure the applicant produces work with no editing. The writing topics may vary.
