"Tonya Ward Singer’s latest book, written in an easy-to-access conversational style, is exactly what teachers need to bring English learners to the next level in language as well as content. Ward Singer obviously knows her way around classrooms that contain ELs and offers practical suggestions grounded in research of what teachers can do when very real situations arise with ELs. This book provides guidance framed around ELs’ proficiency levels and will help teachers find that 'sweet spot' that we’re all looking for to promote our ELs’ excellence. I highly recommend this book for all types of teachers."
