Overview

How to Teach English Language Learners

This hands-on book offers teachers a much-needed resource that will help maximize learning for English Language Learners (ELLs). How to Teach English Language Learners draws on two wide-ranging teacher quality studies and profiles eight educators who have achieved exceptional results with their ELL students. Through highly readable portraits, the authors take readers into these teachers' classrooms, illustrating richly what it is they do differently that yields such great results from English learners. Because most teachers profiled work within a three-tiered Response-to-Intervention framework, the book shows how to implement RTI effectively with ELLs—from providing general reading instruction for the entire classroom to targeted interventions with struggling students. Written by noted ELL educators Diane Haager, Janette K. Klingner, and Terese Aceves, How to Teach English Language Learners is filled with inspiring success stories, teaching tips, activities, discussion questions, and reflections from these outstanding teachers.

"Drawing from the complex and challenging milieu of educating diverse student populations, the authors provide a dynamic teaching and learning resource for ensuring literacy success. The narrative mirrors authentically who we are and who we need to be, as teachers of English learners, to do our best practice effectively and purposefully. The authors capture the essence of teaching and learning with humanity, truth, and complexity.... An exciting resource."
Dr. Dolores Beltran, associate professor, California State University—Los Angeles
