The paper must specifically answer this question: Discuss how school-based early intervention and problem-solving systems can reduce the number of inappropriate referrals of English Language Learners (ELLs) to special education. Imagine that you have been asked to make a presentation during the next faculty meeting for teachers who work with ELLs at your school and identify three or four key concepts (evidence-based; curriculum, instruction, and assessment) that you want to share, and explain why you think they are important.

Although the question presents a scenario, the paper should be written in the third person in a research format, simply keeping in mind the audience is a group of teachers who work with ELLS.
