Practical, easy-to-implement methods for helping English language learners succeed in reading!

Successfully teaching reading to English language learners (ELLs) requires an in-depth understanding of the unique processes by which they learn to read as well as proven strategies that teachers can use to support reading development. This resource focuses on helping students "read to learn" instead of "learn to read."

In clear, accessible language, this resource demystifies the research and clarifies the process for teaching reading to ELLs. The author introduces the key principles of reading instruction for ELLs and offers a wealth of action-oriented strategies—for use before, during, and after reading—to adapt for individual student needs. Each chapter includes reflection questions to help educators examine their own reading practices and better understand what it means to be a reader. Teachers will discover how to:

  • Increase students′ fluency and comprehension
  • Teach vocabulary and text structure
  • Prepare reading lessons
  • Assess reading proficiency

Teaching Reading to English Language Learners is an ideal primer for educators who may or may not have had experience working with ELLs.
