Judie Haynes, Debbie Zacarian, "Teaching English Language Learners Across the Content Areas"
2010 | ISBN: 1416609121 | 200 pages | PDF | 1,5 MB


INTRODUCTION

The audience for Teaching English Language Learners Across
the Content Areas is teachers, supervisors, curriculum specialists,
principals, and superintendents who are working with
English language learners (ELLs) in their classrooms. This
book is the result of our combined experience working with
ELLs: Judie taught elementary and middle school ELLs for
28 years and has been working with teachers of ELLs for the
last 16 years; Debbie worked with high school ELLs for six
years, administered K–12 English language education for over
20 years, and taught at a university for over a decade where
she designed and developed courses for general classroom,
secondary subject-matter, special education, resource, and
English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers, as well as for
administrators who taught English to ELLs. Debbie directs a
professional development, consulting, and support center for
teachers and administrators of ELLs.

Educators are teaching a rapidly growing number of ELLs in
U.S. schools, yet most public school teachers are not trained
to do so. As a result, they are challenged to find effective ways
to ensure that ELLs are actively participating in content area
instruction. This is particularly so because many ELLs receive
limited instruction in ESL.
