About the eBook

"A highly accessible and practical resource for applying sociocultural theory to both pedagogy and parent involvement. It begins with theory, but then provides excellent examples of how the principles might be meaningfully applied in real classrooms."
—Robert Rueda, Professor
University of Southern California

Ensure high student achievement in diverse classrooms with this proven instructional model!

This vital resource presents educators with an instructional approach that is flexible and practical enough for mainstream classroom use—yet also academically rigorous and grounded in research on teaching English language learners (ELLs).

Ideal for elementary and middle school teachers as well as ELL specialists, this book offers six key principles to help educators address language development in a regular classroom while supporting ELL students in learning academic content. This field-tested model is based on five standards for pedagogy from the Center for Research on Education, Diversity, and Excellence (CREDE) as well as the authors′ sixth principle for family involvement. Focusing on one principle per chapter, this book includes:

  • Lessons, tips, and in-depth vignettes from teachers who have been trained in the model
  • Advice on working successfully with ELL families
  • Guiding questions and self-assessments based on CREDE′s indicators for achievement of standards to help teachers monitor their own development

Six Principles for Teaching English Language Learners in All Classrooms will not only assist ELLs, but will ultimately benefit all learners in the inclusive classroom.
