Experience a day in the life of an ELL What if you could barely understand what your teacher is saying? Imagine working mostly independently and silently, with limited opportunities to interact with others. The process of ELL shadowing helps teachers better understand the classroom experience from an English language learner′s point of view. The author describes how to implement this easily accessible form of professional development, outlines specific strategies for adapting instruction to engage ELLs, and provides academic language development videos. The benefits of ELL shadowing are many, and include: - Increased teacher sensitivity to ELLs′ school experiences - A heightened sense of urgency to help ELLs to learn academic language and content - Improved classroom instruction that spreads throughout schools and districts More engaged students who are more likely to stay in school and reach their potential The text includes a detailed case study of shadowing an English language learner and examples of the range of ELLs in our nation′s schools. Readers will also find background on the importance of academic oral language development, the complete ELL Shadowing protocol, and a guide for preparing a personalized professional learning plan for ELL instruction. We cannot and must not rest until we give every group of students the kind of education that they deserve. The time is now, and this book shows you how.

Strategic Inquiry is an innovative model for promoting teacher collaboration around identifying specific "learning gaps" that keep struggling students from succeeding. Gaps may include anything from the proper use of commas and conjunctions to concepts such as "slope" in math. The authors argue that addressing these critical learning gaps can lead to big changes in student success, in teachers' sense of efficacy, and in school culture. The strategic inquiry model has been implemented in schools and districts around the country, including New York City, where it was rigorously evaluated with impressive results. As Common Core standards raise the bar for student learning ever higher, this proven approach promises to build teachers' capacity for closing the gap between where struggling students are and where they need to be.
