Practical Guidelines for the Education of English Language Learners: Research-Based Recommendations for Serving Adolescent NewcomersDownload
This book, released in October 2006, is the second in a series of three Practical Guidelines for the Education of English Language Learners. This document was written primarily for the group of ELLs who are adolescent newcomers to the United States and who have a relatively short period of time in which to simultaneously develop academic language skills and master grade-level content. It provides evidence-based recommendations for policymakers, administrators, and teachers in middle and high schools who seek to make informed decisions about effectively serving adolescent newcomers. A PowerPoint overview is available below for downloading. New for November 2007 is the Professional Development PowerPoint to supplement the content of this book. The detailed slides and speaker notes summarize and augment the information contained in the book and may be used to provide professional development during inservice training to educators teaching in middle and secondary grades.
