From the Author:

It has been a pleasure to travel the country and hear first-hand from teachers the results they have achieved with "Academic Language! Academic Literacy!."  The resonating response has been that the 36 strategies make a huge difference--especially for ELL's and struggling readers.  When the principles and practices discussed in the book have been integrated throughout the core subject areas (social studies, math, science, and language arts), then student learning improves significantly. The drop-out rate will drop dramatically as students from low socio-economic backgrounds develop their academic language capacities.  The research shows that students who are ELL's need explicit intervention support in academic language.  Instructional Coaches and Administrators who develop a systematic interventions for their students will see increases in learning results.  Whether it has been Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Calgary, Seattle, Waco, Portland, or Des Moines, the achievement in student learning has been impressive.  I look forward to hearing how these practical and proven strategies work for your students.

From the Back Cover:

To achieve higher levels of learning, students must be able to understand academic language--the formalized language of instruction found in classrooms, textbooks, and standardized tests.  Eli R. Johnson powerfully demonstrates the need for explict academic language instruction for all students, especially English language learners or those struggling with reading. 

Filled with 36 hands-on strategies, this practical, solidly researched guide helps teachers make the critical connection between academic langauge, literacy, and student achievement for all learners, regardless of home language or socioeconomic status.  This K-12 book also includes:

  • A strategy matrix to help teachers selct appropriate strategies for ther grade level.
  • A description of each strategy with information on how it works in the classroom and why it is effective.
  • Collaborative protocols to help infuse academic language throughout the content areas.
  • Academic Langauge Word Lists for each K-12 grade-level to build student's vocabulary and literacy.
