by John R. Hollingsworth,

Boost achievement for English learners in all subject areas!

Building ELLs' language skills while teaching content is about to get easier. Hollingsworth and Ybarra combine the best of educational theory, brain research, and data analysis to bring you explicit direct instruction (EDI): a proven method for creating and delivering lessons that help students learn more and learn faster. Through classroom examples and detailed sample lessons, you'll learn how to:

  • Craft lessons that ELs can learn the first time they're taught
  • Check for understanding throughout each lesson
  • Embed vocabulary development across the curriculum
  • Address listening, speaking, reading, and writing in all lessons

In The Press

"As a veteran ELL teacher, I appreciated this book showing ways to teach the basics of English learning within the teaching of content standards. The emphasis on choral reading for concept connections and student engagement and using higher-order questioning fit perfectly into our new rigorous framework for teaching."
