The strategies discussed in the book include homework and practice, summarization and note taking, and use of nonlinguistic representations, among many others. For each strategy, the authors provide a summary of the research, detailed examples of how to modify the strategy for use with ELLs in mainstream classrooms, and teacher accounts of implementation. Because ELLs face cultural hurdles as well as linguistic ones, this book also shows teachers how to glean insight into students' backgrounds and address the cultural biases inherent in many classroom practices.
Accommodating English language learners is one of the greatest challenges educators face today. Just as different levels of fluency require different approaches, so too do different backgrounds and languages. This practical, research-based book gives elementary school teachers the guidance they need to help ELLs of all nationalities thrive alongside their English-dominant peers.
Alfie Kohn's devastating critique of the Marzano book is a must read for anyone interested in the supporting evidence behind Marzano's beliefs. In ABUSING RESEARCH: THE STUDY OF HOMEWORK AND OTHER EXAMPLES (Phil Delta Kappan, September 2006) Kohn looks at the same research and reaches the opposite conclusion about the value of homework for children below the age of fifteen.
If you are interested in a good book on this topic I would recommend TEACH LIKE A CHAMPION by Doug Lemov.
