Research-Based Strategies for English Language Learners addresses standards through four proven, effective scaffolds for learning: modeling, contextualizing, thinking about thinking, and reframing information. Within each scaffold Denise Rea and Sandra Mercuri offer ideas for strategy-based instruction that make learning more active, experiential, collaborative, and cognitive for all children. Rea and Mercuri give you everything you need to use these strategies, including lesson plans and suggestions on implementation, as well as a review of the research supporting each lesson and scaffold. Finally, they tie it all together with lessons on conversational and academic English that give students the linguistic awareness needed to become more proficient in their new language and to succeed in school.

Useable across curricular areas, adaptable to grades K-8, and ideal for classroom teachers, ELL specialists, and Title I teachers, Research-Based Strategies for English Language Learners is the practical, classroom-tested resource you've been looking for. Use it and discover reliable strategies for connecting second language learners (or any learners) to content and curriculum.
