Overview

No longer confined to just a few states, English Language Learners (ELLs) present a growing challenge for schools and school districts across the country. Teaching Reading to English Language Learners, Grades 6-12 provides a comprehensive and systematic framework for developing literacy skills and accelerating language development. With funding from the Carnegie Corporation and the U.S. Department of Education, author Margarita Calderon has developed a research-based approach to expediting reading comprehension that results in higher test scores, not just for ELLs but for all students.

This practical guide is full of ready-to-use tools, including: Lesson templates, Rubrics, Sample lesson plans in mathematics, science, language arts, and social studies, Descriptions of successful programs, Professional development designs. Without strong reading skills, students will never reach their full potential. But now this remarkable book offers a rigorously tested, NCLB-aligned instructional model for improving reading in all content areas. Designed primarily for middle and high school teachers of English, science, math, and social studies, this book will also be a valuable resource for middle and high school principals, literacy coaches, and content curriculum specialists.
