Review
“ExC-ELL is about dispelling myths regarding what ELL students can and cannot do. It's also about supporting teachers in the delivery of the high quality, rigorous instruction all students deserve. This book should be in the hands of every middle and high school teacher, serving not just ELL students, but all students who need help increasing their speaking, reading and writing skills.” — Jane Escobedo, Director, English Language Learner Services 20060821 “Provides a model for comprehensive literacy instruction to enhance students' vocabulary and reading comprehension while gaining and consolidating critical content knowledge in the areas of math, science, language arts and social studies. This outstanding book will prove useful to anyone who is working with English Language Learners in the intermediate grades through high school.” — Rebecca S. Donaldson, Reading First Director 20060821 “A welcome addition in providing the high-quality educational experiences students need in order to master a new language and open the doors to the world of opportunity that awaits them.” — Dawn Billings, Partner 20060823 “A fabulous book that covers everything teachers need to know about teaching reading to ELLs.
