Differentiated Literacy Strategies for English Language Learners, Grades 7–12



© 2012 | 240 pages | Corwin
100 ways to keep adolescent ELLs engaged

This versatile handbook is for middle school and high school educators who need to differentiate literacy instruction for adolescent ELL students at various stages of literacy competency. Adapted from the highly successful Differentiated Literacy Strategies for Student Growth & Achievement in Grades 7–12, the authors use brain-based strategies and texts that appeal to older learners who may have had interrupted formal education or come from newly arrived immigrant populations. More than 100 hands-on tools help teachers develop students' competencies in:

  • Content areas, including vocabulary, concept attainment, and comprehension
  • Technology, such as information searching, evaluation, and synthesis
  • Creative applications and 21st century skills

Written for classroom teachers, reading specialists, curriculum developers, and instructional leaders, this one-stop source provides an expert guide to working with all of today's adolescent and teen English language learners.
