Retool your whole school for EL achievement

For any student, middle and high school can be challenging. But for an English learner or striving reader--and the myriad words, phrases, syntax, texts, and concepts they must negotiate on a daily basis--the stakes seem a whole lot higher. Fortunately for content-area teachers, Margarita Calderón and Shawn Slakk make available in a single resource all the best instructional and professional development combinations for expediting comprehension across the secondary grades.

Really a tool to assist all learners across all language needs, the second edition of Teaching Reading to English Learners, Grades 6-12, provides evidence-based strategies for helping content-area teachers and schools at large:

  • Teach academic language in all subject areas
  • Embed discourse practice through interaction strategies
  • Integrate basic and close reading comprehension skills into lessons
  • Teach drafting, revising, and editing for content-specific writing
  • Use cooperative learning to develop social emotional skills and enhance academic achievement
  • Calderón and Slakk know firsthand that if we're to counter the commonly held narrative of predictable failure among our ELs, it takes a whole school, and they have the evidence to prove it. Read Teaching Reading to English Learners, Grades 6-12, implement its strategies across all classrooms, and soon enough you, too, will maximize the comprehensions skills so critical to our ELs' long-term success.
