Title: The Babble Tree English Language Learning Tool-Kit: Early Vocabulary Intervention For Latino Non-English Speaking Students
Agency: USDA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $85,760.00
 

Abstract:

Rural community schools are faced with a growing number of Latino English language learners who have lagged behind in terms of academic achievement, and have school dropout rates near twice those of native English speakers. These Latino ELLs need interventions that teach target vocabulary in an efficient, timely manner, so they can integrate and participate in the economies of rural communities. The purpose of this project is to develop Unit 1 of the Babble Tree English Vocabulary learning Tool-kit and evaluate its potential efficacy to improve literacy among preschool Spanish speaking children in Head Start and in rural communities.
