"Given the number of English learners already in our schools and the rate at which this population is growing, effectively educating language-minority students is one of the greatest challenges schools face. To meet this challenge, as Goldenberg and Coleman forcefully argue, we need to be guided by the best research available. In this lucid, concise, and reader-friendly review of the research on teaching English learners, the authors present the information that teachers, curriculum specialists, and policy makers need to create the strongest possible instructional programs.
"The authors have done an exceptionally good job of capturing the major trends, differing perspectives, and many challenges in schooling of English language learners, while putting forth a vision for the immediate future that is solidly grounded in research and in current and evolving knowledge. This book is essential reading for all teachers, teacher educators, and policy makers."
"A must-read for administrators, program developers, policy makers, and educators who make decisions about English language learners (ELLs) in our schools. Goldenberg and Coleman synthesize a complex body of research into a work that is objective, comprehensive, and understandable. While they address the theories and common beliefs that often drive practice with ELLs, they focus on what is known to be effective for ELLs based on child outcome data. They are also honest and transparent about their own opinions and clear when they are discussing known facts.
