Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Written by a former English language learner who later became a classroom teacher and ELL specialist, this hands-on resource offers practical strategies and tools for assessing and teaching even the most hard-to-reach English language learners. The book is filled with the latest information and best practices for classroom teachers working with ELLs.

How to Reach and Teach English Language Learners contains practical suggestions for getting to know the needs of your English learners and provides a wealth of classroom-tested models and measures. These tools have proven to be effective with ESL students at all levels, including long-term English learners. Throughout the book, Syrja not only presents the strategies but also clearly demonstrates how best to implement them in a way that ensures success for your English learners.

How to Reach and Teach English Language Learners contains a wealth of information on a variety of topics including

  • Understanding how children acquire language

  • Identifying language acquisition levels

  • Assessing and grading English language learners

  • Connecting with the families of ELLs

  • Using the four domains of language

  • Making content comprehensible

  • Teaching strategies for reading, writing, math, and other content areas

While acknowledging there is no magic bullet to teaching ELLs, the author presents strategies and tools that are designed to help you discover what works for your students.

if you're beginning to teach esl, or just a friend who doesn't understand the nuances of one of the most complicated languages then this is a good place. its perfect for understanding the difficulties of foreign, non-native speakers.

This book has some good strategies in it. There are a lot out there like it. I think all ELL teachers should be required to read this book as there are currently no standards nor curriculum to teach our English Language Learners.

This book was in excelent condition. The only minor thing I had was it was delivered the day before my class, but other than that once I received the book it was worth the wait.

Thank you,

Tia
