As an educator in today's increasingly diverse classrooms, ensuring all students have equal access to high-quality instruction is more critical than ever. Yet supporting English language learners (ELLs) effectively can be an overwhelming task. How can you provide differentiated instruction across varying language proficiency levels? What scaffolds best promote academic literacy and discourse? Constructing Meaning has answers. 

Constructing Meaning is an evidence-based approach for explicitly building the academic language ELLs need to engage with grade-level content. Through strategic routines and backward planning, educators embed vocabulary, reading, writing, and discussion tools into lessons. Students construct meaning around topics through meaningful engagement and discourse.  

On our new Alludo professional development platform, you’ll master Constructing Meaning’s research-driven six step process. Discover how to evaluate and refine instructional practices to amplify ELLs’ linguistic assets. Our on-demand modules equip you with actionable strategies to implement across content areas, including:

  • Designing lessons to balance content and language goals
  • Using formative assessments and student work analysis to tailor reclassification support  
  • Fostering academic conversations through structured student discourse
  • Building academic literacy through interactive reading and writing
  • Creating student-centered hybrid learning environments  

Join a community of educators using Constructing Meaning to close opportunity gaps. With dedicated coaching and micro-credentialing, Alludo provides sustained, job-embedded support to transform theory into practice. Start building your ELL toolkit today!
