FLL - Dual Language  Evaluación del nivel independiente de lectura® (ENIL®) American Reading Company

The Evaluación del nivel independiente de lectura® (ENIL®) is a developmental reading taxonomy for students that reflects how the stages of learning to read differ between Spanish and English. ENIL® delivers specific, actionable data that tells the teacher where a student is, why, and the sequence of skills/behaviors needed to learn next to accelerate reading growth. 

 

ENIL® will be used to provide Spanish Literacy instruction with dual language students during the 30-minute FLL block.

 

Resource to be replaced: This is a new resource to support the expansion of dual language into 6th grade.
