Project WILD and Project Learning Tree for Second Language Learners

Second language learners are a significant part of the school-age population in Colorado. These students achieve more when their classroom teachers are trained in concepts and techniques that encourage success.

A group of children gather around a large topographical map. For many years, Professor Nancy Commins and Rafael Salgado of the Cal-Wood Education Center, have been developing and testing unique approaches to sheltering English with Project WILD and Project Learning Tree. They have compiled their insights and methods into the Sheltered Instruction Using Project WILD and Project Learning Tree: Providing Access to Environmental Education for Second Language Learners guide. This document focuses on concepts and methods applicable to providing sheltered English instruction in environmental education and other settings as well as being useful in native language settings.
