This is a phenomenal resource for any teacher looking to increase their usage of best practices. These strategies are powerful for every learner in a classroom even though it is targeted towards instructing English Language Learners. I read this for my TESOL endorsement and it was easy to read and will definitely provide a treasure trove of methods to engage all of my students. I love how the strategies are formatted and classroom anecdotes are provided for both elementary and secondary classroo ...more

I was required to purchase this text in my undergraduate career for my ELL endorsement. This text has been so useful in helping teach literacy with not only ELL students, but struggling native English speakers in the classroom too. Each skill is broken down into steps and how you implement the strategy in your classroom. Also, the text included graphic organizers to go with the strategies as well. I use mostly for vocabulary and comprehension skills.

Great ideas for the my team-taught EL class. The strategies are short, easy to read, and there is always an elementary and secondary example. I found a lot of helpful strategies I have already started to implement in my classroom.

This book has great tips and lessons for teaching English Language Learners! It comes with a cd shows teachers teaching lessons and how they help their ELL students.

Far and away my favorite book on this topic. There appears to be a new edition out but I can't tell what the difference is between the new and the old (other than the fact it includes a CD).

Full of awesome ideas that could be easily implemented in a classroom. I'm sure I'll need these when I start teaching again here in Seattle.

Nothing earth-shattering here. I'd like to read something that includes some new strategies...not the same old, same old.

Everything was directed towards elementary and middle school readers. Not much help with students who don't want to be treated like little kids. They tend to resent that.

Definitely making its way from my bookshelf to school...a useful, practical read for anyone working with ELLs.
