About this product
- DescriptionGrounded in research and practical expertise, this volume helps K-6 teachers skillfully support all of their English language learners (ELLs)-from a single student to an entire classroom. Ideas for teaching ELLs across different grade and proficiency levels include ways to link instruction to students' lived experiences, use a variety of motivating print and electronic texts and materials, engage families, and conduct effective assessments. Chapters are packed with tools and activities for promoting ELLs' development in oral language, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing, and grammar. Handy reproducibles and Voice from the Classroom teacher vignettes enhance the utility of the book.
