Finally, we admit that the capability and knowledge that is needed to reach ILR Level 4
proficiency is broad and deep. One set of workbooks certainly is not enough to address all students’
needs. Moreover, at this level students differ very distinctly one from another. Our purpose is not to
satisfy all these needs, but to provide a guide, i.e. a template, that can flex and grow to meet the
individual needs of any particular student or group of students and provide teachers with a support
staff for helping students to march past ILR Level 3 to ILR Level 4 and beyond.
