Abstract

In the article, the author reviews the process of programmatic change as services for limited English proficient (LEP) students at Woodbury Elementary School in Marshalltown, Iowa progressed from a pull-out English as a Second Language (ESL) program to a transitional bilingual program, and ultimately to an inclusive bilingual model. The author recounts the early stages of the program, its growth and history, and the conditions which led to the change. The author also provides a detailed snapshot of the current program, including goals, various implementation issues and their resolutions, and a summary of student performance results. Continual evolution of the program as well as attempts to address current challenges is also discussed
