How does Amira support English Language Learners (ELLs)?
Research conducted by leading universities has found that, for English Only students, working with Amira 45 minutes a week accelerated growth as much as giving each student their own certified human tutor. Amira is even more effective with ELLs. We believe this is for several reasons:
1. Amira lowers the affective filter as ELLs often find it less threatening to read to a computer
2. Amira is great at building vocabulary.
3. Amira can relate the student's native language knowledge back to English.
Amira's analytics can also help teachers hone in on the particular blockers that are impeding on ELLs’ progress.
