by Karen D. Thompson
The label Long-Term English Learner (LTEL) is used to describe students educated in the U.S. for many years but still not meeting English proficiency criteria. In this mixed methods study, the author uses eight years of district-wide, student-level longitudinal data to determine characteristics and overall patterns of academic achievement for LTELs in a medium-sized California district. In addition, case study research methods examine the experiences of three LTELs within this same district in greater depth.
