The Language in Action Program (LAP) is in full swing this semester! LAP is a federally funded program that provides English language acquisition for the District’s English Learners in a socially and emotionally supportive environment. This year the program will be implemented at 65 Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) high schools. All English Learners are welcomed but priority is given to the District’s newcomer population.
Students at Roybal Learning Center and Wilson Senior High School engage in academic activities with their peers.
The Language in Action Program’s curriculum consists of constructive conversations, academic activities, and persuasive advertisements that address a social issue. The program provides English Learners a welcoming environment where they have the opportunity to practice their oral English skills and interact with their peers through engaging academic activities. This year LAP students are collaboratively exploring possible solutions to issues such as global warming, homelessness, child poverty, gang violence and other social issues.
This semester LAP is being implemented at 33 LAUSD high schools from the San Fernando Valley to the Harbor area. In the spring semester the program will service 32 additional schools.
Students at Fremont SH work collaboratively on their classroom presentation.
