Review quote

"This useful title contains a lot of good information for teachers and English language learners. . . . It is packed with practical, pertinent ideas and activities. Recommended." - Library Media Connection "...an invaluable and instructive introduction for classroom teachers and their aides. . . . offers practical ideas and detailed lessons that take useful advantage of technology and games as teaching tools, create and adapt lessons to individual student needs, and so much more. Informed and informative, English Language Learners is enhanced with references to extensive research students and the linking of each individual lesson with state standards in English language development, making it a core addition to ESL and ELL instruction guide reference collections." - Midwest Book Review "If you're stuck on how to become a better ELL teacher beyond the instruction, this book is for you." - Teacher Leaders Network "What stands out about Larry Ferlazzo's new book...from others that describe strategies to engage high school ELLs are his suggestions for how to encourage such students to be leaders." - Education Week "If you agree that ELL and other students considered 'high-need' are often treated as individuals with deficits to be addressed rather than potential to be developed, you'll find important messages ... in Larry's latest book." - Teacher Leaders Network
