Review quote

"Standards based, practical, and flexible, this book provides tools for helping ELLs grow in critical areas of literacy. Teachers are guided to select exactly which lessons are most appropriate for the needs of their students and to determine the level of instruction: beginning, intermediate, or advanced. The 'Tech It Out' sections and many website links show how to take learning to the next level in a modern way. Teachers finally have a way to differentiate literacy skills so ELLs can actively participate with their peers. This is a 'must-have' book for every classroom teacher trying to help ELLs succeed!" - Jacqueline Wells, fifth-grade teacher, Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA "The instructional strategies in this book have the potential not only to increase students' literacy and language learning, but also to deepen their content area understanding and thus grow their knowledge across the disciplines. These authors have clearly been in the classroom; in addition to addressing instructional issues, they address classroom management. They provide solid ideas for small-group instruction and integral extension activities and strategies for teaching the rest of the class. This is a teachers' book written by teachers." - Sharon O'Neal, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Texas State University-San Marcos, USA
