Retool your whole school for EL achievement 

For any student, middle and high school can be challenging. But for an English learner or striving reader—and the myriad words, phrases, syntax, texts, and concepts they must negotiate on a daily basis—the stakes seem a whole lot higher. Fortunately for content-area teachers, Margarita Calderón and Shawn Slakk make available in a single resource all the best instructional and professional development combinations for expediting comprehension across the secondary grades. 

Really a tool to assist all learners across all language needs, the second edition of Teaching Reading to English Learners, Grades 6-12, provides evidence-based strategies for helping content-area teachers and schools at large: 

  • Teach academic language in all subject areas 
  • Embed discourse practice through interaction strategies 
  • Integrate basic and close reading comprehension skills into lessons 
  • Teach drafting, revising, and editing for content-specific writing  
  • Use cooperative learning to develop social emotional skills and enhance academic achievement 

Calderón and Slakk know firsthand that if we’re to counter the commonly held narrative of predictable failure among our ELs, it takes a whole school, and they have the evidence to prove it. Read Teaching Reading to English Learners, Grades 6-12, implement its strategies across all classrooms, and soon enough you, too, will maximize the comprehensions skills so critical to our ELs’ long-term success.   

Industry Reviews

"Teaching Reading to English Learners, Grades 6-12, is useful for any secondary teacher who works with English learners, but what makes it unique is its upbeat tone, high and loving expectations for all English learners, and empathy for the challenges they face. Calderonand Slakk help teachers believe in their students, which is essential to teach them. It is rare that a textbook is such a pleasure to read."

-- Robert E. Slavin, Director of the Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University and Institute for Effective Education at the University of York
