About this title


Greater numbers of English learners (ELs) are enrolled in school every year. Teachers and administrators are concerned with the large gap in reading and academic standing between ELs and students performing at grade level and want to know how to provide quality instruction to help close this gap. This book addresses the language, literacy, and content instructional needs of ELs and frames quality instruction within effective schooling structures and the implementation of RTI. New instructional strategies and assessment processes energize and motivate everyone especially the students. Dedicated educators who want to generate passion, commitment, and energy in meeting the challenge of quality instruction in every classroom can use this book to create momentum.
