“As a classroom teacher with English learners, this book would be a savior in assisting me with my teaching.”
–Jodi Grubb, Pittsfield Elementary School, Pittsfield, NH
“This is a fabulous resource for elementary teachers who have English language learners of all proficiency levels in their classrooms. [The book] is especially helpful for those [teachers] who do not have much ELL support and not enough minutes in the day. The SIOP® model allows you to work with your ELLs while still teaching content/grade level material...It is obvious that the authors know what teachers need and...give both the strategies that teachers are longing for while also providing them with the research-based knowledge to help [teachers] understand...Excellent!”
–Lisa J. DeMaagd, ELL teacher, Taft Elementary, Wyoming, MI
