Masters in TESOL in North America 2017/2018.

TRANSLATE We test an instructional model (TRANSLATE) designed to improve the English reading comprehension of EL students in grades 2 and 3.

Our goal is to establish proof of concept for the TRANSLATE approach and to identify any remaining problems teachers encounter during its implementation. [-]
