Frames for Fluency by Ballard and Tighe

Frames for Fluency is a flexible and easy-to-use tool designed to increase the oral fluency of English learners (EL). Through meaningful and authentic oral practice, English learners will develop the automaticity they need to succeed academically in content area classes. Frames for Fluency is an excellent supplement to any core English language development (ELD) or English as a second language (ESL) curriculum, and is ideal for summer school, after school, intervention and bilingual programs, and other ELD/ESL settings. As a companion to Ballard & Tighe’s Carousel of IDEAS, Fourth Edition, Frames for Fluency provides reinforcement of the vocabulary and language forms and functions taught in the Carousel program. Although this supplemental tool is aligned to the language forms and functions delineated in Carousel, most core programs today center instruction around proficiency levels with similar proficiency level expectations.
