Classical English Language Learners Department | 2017-2018

The English Language Learners (ELL) Program

  1. The primary purpose of the ELL/SEI program is to provide non-English speaking students with an educational environment that gives them the supports they need for success.
  2. This program includes techniques and methodology, designed to teach ELL students social and academic English language skills within their content classes.
  3. The instruction is in English and is designed to develop competency and a language base for grade level curriculum
  4. The program develops oral proficiency with the integration of reading and writing.
  5. Students who have limited or interrupted formal schooling go to our Newcomer Program in order to prepare for grade 9.
  6. Students who have current transcripts are assigned to their appropriate grade/ proficiency level  
  7. Most students spend 2 full years within the program. (Going from ESL A level to B level).  Students in their 3rd year take one mainstream English class and one mainstream social studies class supported by one additional English class within the ESL program. These students may take mainstream or SEI science and math classes based on teacher recommendation and/or MCAS results.  ESL students transition into full mainstream classes in their 4th year.

“I believe that education is the civil rights issue of our generation. And if you care about promoting opportunity and reducing inequality, the classroom is the place to start. Great teaching is about so much more than education; it is a daily fight for social justice.”Secretary Arne Duncan

Greg MacPhee English    
GM Greg MacPhee graduated from Clark University with a BA in History in 2012 and a MA in Teaching in 2013. While student teaching history at Worcester's South High Community School, he found that many of his most dedicated students were English Language Learners. After this positive experience, he decided to work full time with ELL's. He worked at Lynn English High School during the 2013-2014 school year, but is happy to be here at Classical since 2014.

He loves being able to see the progress his students make right before his eyes. Having gone on a high school exchange to Costa Rica and spent a semester of college in Istanbul, Turkey, he understands what it is like to live and study in a foreign country and language, but also the rewards of working in such diverse settings. Outside of teaching, Mr. MacPhee enjoys reading both fiction and nonfiction, learning about history, keeping up with current events, and hanging out with a diverse group of friends from high school, college, and work. Along with English, he speaks some Spanish and a little bit of Turkish (as well as fluent Bostonian).
