Research shows that when English language learners understand the vocabulary used on tests, their scores soar—critical information for schools in an age of testing and accountability. This book provides evidence-based, teacher-friendly lesson plans that will help English language learners deal with unfamiliar language features on standardized test questions. It supports content-area teachers in providing instruction for content-specific language skills. Teaching Your Secondary ELL Students the Academic Language of Tests is geared toward teachers of secondary students in grades 6-12; this volume covers the content areas of math, science, and social studies.

Each lesson plan provides background information for the teacher, implications for high-stakes testing, a goal, a list of materials, activities, and in many cases, graphic organizers. Some of the lesson plans support learning the language needed to gain content knowledge necessary to prepare for high-stakes tests. Other lessons deal specifically with test language and support instruction on test items. The teaching strategies are varied and differentiated in order to meet the needs of English language learners. Word lists are divided by content area and grade level, with separate lists for middle and high school students. Included with the word lists are teaching ideas for using the lists in the classroom.
