Teaching Reading to English Language Learners: Differentiating Literacies, 1/e This practical, research-based book blends theory and practice to provide grade-level and ESL teachers with the tools they need to differentiate literacy instruction for ELL students. KEY TOPICS: Organized around the major findings from the National Reading Report, the book addresses a critical national need for teachers to have new and better information on how to address the literacy needs of English language learners. The authors address the need to move the field beyond the current one size fits all' paradigm toward a broader view of how to create meaningful and relevant literacy programs. They stress meaning and relevance as the basis for all instructional activities and strategies: if meaning is at the center, it is not necessary to delay literacy instruction in English while students are learning to understand and speak English. The chapters in the book detail a concrete and specific way how literacy instruction can be--and needs to be--truly modified for ELLs.

"I have been in reading instruction for 33 years and there are teachers in my school who have been in for three years [to] 23 years…with the variation in experience, we have a wide variety of backgrounds…this text brings all that together because of the way it is written…I would use [this book] with my lower grade Reading First teachers and with teachers in grades 2 and 3 for struggling readers. Phonemic Awareness is usually a missing piece in those students who are not on grade level by this time. We could put this information to good use and make it applicable at many grade levels.” — Cathy Taylor, Reading First Literacy Coach, Stewart County Elementary School, Lumpkin, GA Also available in the Evidence-Based Instruction in Reading series: A Professional Development Guideto Phonics © 2008 ISBN: 0-205-45630-8 A Professional Development Guideto Vocabulary © 2008 ISBN: 0-205-45631-6 A Professional Development Guideto Fluency © 2008 ISBN: 0-205-45629-4 A Professional Development Guideto Comprehension © 2008 ISBN: 0-205-45627-8
