The 2015 Every Student Succeeds Act puts an even greater focus on ELLs because both their achievement and their progress toward English proficiency are included in accountability measures. That means teachers of every subject and at every grade level need to know how to help their ELLs reach full academic English proficiency as quickly as possible while learning important content along the way. Using research as well as examples from years of classroom observations, author of the ASCD book Dispelling Misconceptions About English Language Learners: Research-Based Ways to Improve Instruction, Barbara Gottschalk will give educators the knowledge they need to add to the experience they already have with English language learners.
