Supporting EAL students

Supporting English as an Additional Language (EAL) students ensures their academic success and overall integration into the classroom environment. At Renaissance, we offer a range of resources designed to empower EAL students and provide them with the tools they need to excel in their educational journey.

We cater to students at different proficiency levels, from beginner to advanced, and provide comprehensive support in reading, writing, vocabulary development, and language acquisition.

Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader offers a vast library of books spanning various genres and reading levels. EAL students can access age-appropriate books that match their reading abilities, fostering confidence and enjoyment in reading.

With Accelerated Reader’s built-in comprehension quizzes, EAL students can assess their understanding of the text, reinforce vocabulary acquisition, and improve reading fluency.

Teachers can monitor students’ progress, identify areas for improvement, and provide targeted support based on individual needs.

Star Assessments

Star Assessments provide teachers with reliable and accurate data on EAL students’ language proficiency levels, helping them identify specific areas for improvement.

Teachers can use the assessment results to create personalised learning paths and provide targeted interventions, ensuring EAL students receive the support they need to succeed.


myON is an interactive digital library with a vast collection of engaging books and articles. EAL students can choose from a range of topics that interest them, making reading an enjoyable experience.

myON offers features like audio narration and embedded dictionaries that help EAL students improve their pronunciation, fluency, and understanding of new vocabulary.

In addition, myON offers news articles in five different languages, supporting EAL students by providing access to news content in their preferred language and facilitating comprehension and engagement with current events.

I absolutely would recommend Accelerated Reader and Star Reading. It makes promoting reading and measuring progress much more tangible, making it easier for EAL students.
