In this indispensable work, prominent authorities review the latest research on all aspects of ELL instruction (K–12)
and identify what works for today's students and schools. Provided are best-practice guidelines for targeting reading,
writing, oral language, vocabulary, content-domain literacies, and other core skill areas; assessing culturally and
linguistically diverse students; and building strong school–home–community partnerships. Chapters include clear-cut
recommendations for teaching adolescent ELLs and those with learning disabilities. The comprehensive scope, explicit
linkages from research to practice, and guidance for becoming a culturally informed, reflective practitioner make the
book an ideal course text.
