Project ALL - All Language Learners
Title III - Project ALL has been a professional development program at the Lynch School of Education (LSOE) at Boston College that prepared pre-service and in-service teachers to become qualified to teach English Language Learners (ELLs). Funded by a $1,500,000 grant from the Office of English Language Acquisition of the US Department of Education, Project ALL also supported faculty within LSOE who supported the preparation of teachers to work with ELLs. Project ALL concluded in September 2007.
Professor Maria Brisk headed the Title III-Project ALL program and its efforts to equip all pre and in-service teachers with the pedagogical content knowledge and practical experience to serve the increasing number of ELLs both locally and throughout the nation. The TELL program and its initial support through Project ALL aims to improve instruction for ELLs by increasing connections between theory and practice.
