This practical resource for social studies teachers simplifies the instruction needed for ELLs to develop the social and academic language required for their success, while maintaining the integrity of the lesson content by integrating three instructional components: the English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), the 5E instructional model, and the highly-effective instructional strategies identified by the Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning study led by Robert Marzano.
Each book includes:
- Reader activities that facilitate the use of the book in a learning team or as a book study, as well as for individual study.
- Instructional and vocabulary-building strategies and tools.
- Three classroom-ready, content-specific lessons that illustrate how the instructional components can be easily integrated.
