Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A must-have resource for any classroom teacher with English learners in the class!

This brief and highly practical resource offers strategies and activities for differentiating early literacy instruction for English language learners.

Paul Boyd-Batstone draws on a wealth of classroom experience working with teachers and students to create a book that gives readers the critical information they need to teach English language learners in an accessible format. This book is packed with strategies and activities that are directly applicable to the classroom and that focus on meeting the early literacy demands of No Child Left Behind. Early literacy strategies for English language learners are differentiated according to five levels of language proficiency.

Praise from Reviewers:

“I like the use of peers in the writing process because it has the potential to serve so many good purposes…I appreciate the level of detail for collaborative, interactive, and individual writing activities within each fluency level.” –Molly F. Collins, The Erikson Institute

“There are many, many unique features of this text, for example, the combination of practical lesson steps and visual illustrations, coupled with frequent “Tips for Parent Involvement.” The most impressive point I’d like to make here is that the author’s experience in the field is very evident and shows in the quality and thoroughness of the material generally.” –Sally Gearhart, Santa Rosa Junior College

Unique Features:

• Includes a wealth of tips for parent involvement offering ways parents, who may not be literate in English, can help their child develop literacy skills.
