DI's Results with ELL Students: "Amazing"

I made the mistake of underestimating how well DI would work with my English Language Learner (ELL) students. I had a student who I didn't think would be able to make it in the program. Just two weeks ago, he was frustrated and slamming his workbook on his desk. We are now in Corrective Reading: Comprehension B and he is surpassing the rest. Same thing with Corrective Reading: Decoding! He can independently answer written questions from the stories we read together, and he is constantly asking what words mean and gets really excited about the stories. His English progress is incredible and he retains and uses what he learns. I've worked with MANY ELL students and have never seen the results I am seeing with him! It is AMAZING to see this DI program work for ELL students.
