Your ELLs’ and SELs’ bridge to more rigorous content
“This series will be a valuable resource for all teachers of EL and SEL learners.”
—PAULINE GIBBONS, Author of Scaffolding Language, Scaffolding Learning
By now it’s a given: if we’re to help our ELLs and SELs access the rigorous demands of today’s content standards, we must explicitly teach the “code” that drives school success: academic language. Look no further for assistance than this much-anticipated series from Ivannia Soto, in which she invites field authorities to share every teacher’s need-to-know strategies on the four essential components of academic language:
- Jeff Zwiers on conversational discourse in context
- David and Yvonne Freeman on grammar and syntax in context
- Margarita Calderon on vocabulary in context
- Noma LeMoine on culture in context.
Select the book that best matches your immediate needs; each one is designed to stand alone. Better yet, read all four volumes as your start-to-finish instructional plan for closing the achievement gap once and for all.
