Transforming Schools for English Learners
A Comprehensive Framework for School Leaders



April 2011 | 200 pages | Corwin
Leading Schools with English Language Learners is unique in its focus on how principals and district-level school leaders can improve English language learner's academic performance and school engagement through careful and visionary planning of English language education programming. It also focuses on active engagement of English language learners and their families in the school community. The author's ultimate goal is to help administrators build a school environment where ELLs can flourish. Each chapter of the book will focus on a key element of English language education programming as it relates to the entire school.

The author addresses such critical topics as selecting appropriate program models for schools and making data-driven decisions using effective measures of student performance. There are also full chapters on delivering high quality content lessons to ELLs, the importance of parental engagement, and identifying and working with ELLs with learning differences, which includes a detailed discussion of response to intervention.
