Item description

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. It's a powerful array of field-tested literacy tools for closing the achievement gap.

With funding from the Carnegie Corporation and the U.S. Department of Education, author Margarita Calderón 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.
