Course No. ED437C, ED537C

The diversity among learners in today’s ELL classroom is widening, but ironically the curriculum is contracting, often due to the emphasis on preparation for standardized testing.  To the rescue come the authors, Kathleen Flynn and Jane Hill, who provide the ultimate handbook of methods and specifics about how to work with ELL students as they move through the five phases to become fluent English students.  The great insights you will get include how to make an easy diagnosis to determine at which of five stages a student is functioning—and a probable timeline for your student.
The authors have reviewed the classic nine strategies in the first edition of Classroom Instruction That Works by Marzano and Pickering. Then they enhanced each of the nine models to make that strategy work especially well with ELL students in the classroom.  So this is a companion book to Classroom Instruction That Works, and its content is even more readable and user-friendly.  
While the book is of most urgent value to elementary teachers, where most ELL students begin their classroom experiences, secondary teachers will find a great deal of essential background information to help them continue to teach older students at the next logical developmental level.
