Discover the research and facts on what works in educating English learners!

A generation or two ago, the achievement of children who came to school knowing little or no English was not a prominent national issue. Today, with the increased focus on school accountability and educational equity, it is.

This comprehensive resource explores the research on promoting academic success among language-minority students. The authors offer educators a firm basis for making decisions on policies and programs for English learners and provide research-based discussions on what we know about:

  • Bilingual education and using a student’s home language in instruction
  • Teaching English and academic content simultaneously
  • School and district factors that affect achievement for English learners
  • Sociocultural factors in success, including the influence of parents and families
