In 2007, the National Center on Educational Outcomes developed a document review of state standards and supplementary instructional documents to help answer questions about what states were currently recommending to address the educational challenges of English language learners with disabilities. The questions asked for this review were:

  • Do states recommend instructional strategies in reading, mathematics, or science for ELLs with disabilities?
  • What is the nature of the instructional strategies being recommended in general, and for ELLs with disabilities?
  • How are the strategies communicated to educators?
