Practical Ideas that Really Work for English Language Learners
Authors: Kathleen McConnell / David Campos / Gail Ryser
Designed for ELL, LEP, and ESL students in Grades 4-12, this kit contains a criterion-referenced rating scale to evaluate each students current proficiency, a matrix of ideas to tailor instruction to the student based on the rating scale, and 37 research-based strategies for building skills for listening, speaking, reading, and writing, along with cultural awareness. The rating scale evaluates behaviors that interfere with learning and social interaction; it uses LEP terminology from No Child Left Behind, and ESL standards developed by TESOL. Consumable evaluation forms; reproducible masters for most activities.
