Reading to Learn and Older ELLs

Reading to Learn and Older ELLs

Essential PLC question: How will we respond when they have not learned it?

“English Language Learners are learning English at the same time they are studying core content through English. They must perform double the work of native speakers to keep up, and at the same time be accountable for AYP” (Calderon, M., Carnegie Panel on ELL Literacy)

“Without explicit instruction on reading…, students cannot learn math, science, social studies and literature” (Calderon, M., NRC Commission on Teacher Preparation).
