This teacher resource describes the Successful Language Learners Whole-school ESL Language and Literacy (SLL) strategy implemented in 11 Sydney metropolitan public and Catholic schools. The strategy met the needs of ESL students, particularly refugee students, newly arrived students with little or no English language skills, and students at risk. The resource is organised in eight sections: Summary, Target student group, Method, Results, Lessons learned, Research base, Further reading and links, and Contacts. It describes the project's four interrelated strategies and the improvement achieved in the English-language proficiency of ESL students, and in the literacy and numeracy of all students.
