BELL Project

Beginning English Literacy and Learning

Getting Learners to the Starting Line

Getting Learners to the Starting Line

The BELL project, funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc., is focused on creating, providing, and sustaining English classes for those immigrants who are beginning learners. Recent IWC research revealed the need for more classes for learners with limited schooling and literacy skills and more training for teachers. Our goal is to get these learners to the starting line.
