Differentiated Literacy Strategies for English Language Learners, Grades K–6



November 2011 | 232 pages | Corwin
This is a versatile handbook for elementary educators who need to differentiate literacy instruction for ELL students. This resource gives teachers an instructional and assessment framework designed to promote the multiple competencies their learners need: functional literacy for phonics, spelling, and reading; content-area literacy for vocabulary, concept attainment, and comprehension; technological literacy for information searching, evaluation, and synthesis; and innovative literacy for creativity, growth, and life-long learning. With more than 100 planning models, matrixes, rubrics, and checklists included, this book is the ideal resource for all elementary teachers who want to close the achievement gap for emerging learners and insure the growth and development of ELL students.
