Item description

Break through language barriers and put ELL students at ease in your classroom.

More than ever before, K12 educators in today's classrooms teach students from diverse language backgrounds. Help ensure that English language learners successfully transition into the school community and participate fully in the classroom learning environment! This handy reference guide to the ten most common languages of students who do not speak English — Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, Arabic, Tagalog, Haitian Creole, Navajo, Hmong, Cantonese, and Korean — offers practical guidance for communicating with ELL students and their families.

With a chapter dedicated to each language, this book provides a wealth of resources to help you make meaningful connections with ELL students, including:
  • Information about the traditions, religions, and celebrations of the family's country of origin
  • Guides to common words and phrases in the student's native language
  • Picture dictionaries that can be reproduced for use with students
  • Sample parent letters that include both English and native language translations
  • Basic reading tests in ten languages

Product Reviews

"The authors have created a must-have resource for any teacher who works with ELL students. This book may be the difference between success and failure, for both the teacher and the student." --Patrick F. Sheedy III, Executive Director, Rochester Montessori School, MN

"Finally, a book that gets at the heart of communicating with ESL/ELL students. This book hits home by focusing interactions with students on a cultural level within each language group, and then takes it a step further with ideas for parental communication. A must-have for teachers trying to break down communication barriers." --Andrew Pontius, Middle School Teacher, Overseas Family School, Singapore
