Advocating for English Learners: A Guide for Educators

Non Member Price: $34.95
Your Price: $34.95


 

Description: English learners (ELs) are the fastest growing segment of the K-12 population. But ELs and their families-who are in the process of learning English and navigating an often-unfamiliar education system-may not have a powerful enough voice to articulate their needs. Consequently, all teachers and administrators must advocate for this all-important diverse group of students who will become tomorrow's workforce. This book demystifies the techniques of advocacy for ELs. No educator can miss out on this essential book.

NEW: Dr. Staehr Fenner recently led a virtual seminar based on the book. It's titled "Advocating for English Learners: Sharing the Responsibility and the Joy."
