English learners are the fastest growing student population in the United States. Many of these students are placed in classrooms with teachers who lack the preparation to help culturally and linguistically diverse children excel. This book helps bridge the gap between students' needs and teachers' preparation, offering an overview of English learners and practitioner-focused strategies for -curriculum and planning, -reading instruction, and -oral-language and writing development. You'll discover ways to help English learners develop the language and literacy skills necessary for success in today's standards-based classrooms.
