Because it takes more than just a single teacher–or group of teachers–to raise the academic achievement of English language learners (ELLs), you need this book's schoolwide framework to help all ELLs reach their full potential. Discover a way to empower all teachers–even those with no formal training in ESL–with a research-based approach that includes:
Content reading strategies that help ELLs overcome the challenges of academic reading.
Ways to develop the higher-order thinking skills of ELLs, so they read for deeper meaning and demonstrate their understandings.
Tools for informally assessing the progress of ELLs through all five stages of language proficiency.
Techniques for increasing the active participation of ELLs.
Scaffolds that help second-language learners take on more challenging and demanding content.
To help teachers use this framework right away, the authors include lots of field-tested unit and lesson planning worksheets and assessment logs.
