Increasingly, many immigrants and other non-native English speakers are studying in career and technical education certificate or degree programs. Their acquisition of content may be compromised by challenges with English vocabulary, language structures and functions, and cultural information. In Washington, DC, the Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) has been training workforce instructors at the Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School in sheltered instruction methodology that improves studentsâ€™ English language proficiency and content knowledge.
