It covers the key developments in the ESOL curriculum and teacher training and explores concerns relating to quality assurance. With checklists and inspirations taken from the field, this practical resource helps practitioners to understand what they need to know and do.

This book examines immigrant student achievement and education policy across a range of Western nations. It is divided into 3 sections: Part 1 introduces the topic of immigrant student achievement and the performance disadvantage that is consistently reported across a range of international jurisdictions. Part 2 then presents national profiles from scholars in ten countries (England, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand). These educational jurisdictions were selected because they represent a range of Western nations engaged in large-scale reform efforts geared towards enhancing their immigrant students’ achievement. Each of the national profiles provides a brief overview of the evolution of the cultural composition of their respective school-aged student population; explains the trajectory of achievement results in non-immigrant and immigrant student groups in relation to both national and international large-scale assessment measures; and discusses the effectiveness of policy responses that have been adopted to close the achievement gap between non-immigrant and immigrant student populations. It also examines the relationships between education policies and immigrant student achievement and discusses how education policies have evolved across various cultural contexts. In conclusion, Part 3 analyzes cross-cultural approaches designed to address the performance disadvantage of immigrant students and proposes future areas of inquiry stemming from the national profiles. The book offers insights into a diverse cross-section of nations and policy approaches to addressing the performance disadvantage.

Much has been written about the cognitive and academic language needs of those learning English as a new language (be it a second language in the United States or other Englishspeaking countries or as a foreign language in all other parts of the world). Many guidebooks and professional development materials have been produced on teacher collaboration and coteaching for special education, inclusive classrooms. Similarly, much has been published about effective strategies teachers can use to offer more culturally and linguistically responsive instruction to their language learners. However, only a few resources are available to help general education teachers and ESL (Englishasasecondlanguage) specialists, or two Englishasaforeignlanguage (EFL) teachers (such as native and nonnative English speaking) teachers to collaborate effectively. With this volume, our goal is to offer an accessible resource, longawaited by educators whose individual instructional practice and/or institutional paradigm shifted to a more collaborative approach to language education. Through this collection of chapters, we closely examine ESL/EFL coteaching and other collaborative practices by (a) exploring the rationale for teacher collaboration to support ESL/EFL instruction, (b) presenting current, classroombased, practitioneroriented research studies and documentary accounts related to coteaching, coplanning, coassessing, curriculum alignment, teacher professional development, and additional collaborative practices, and (c) offering authentic teacher reflections and recommendations on collaboration and coteaching. These three major themes are woven together throughout the entire volume, designed as a reference to both novice and experienced teachers in their endeavors to provide effective integrated, collaborative instruction for EFL or ESL learners. We also intend to help preservice and inservice ESL/EFL teachers, teacher educators, professional developers, ESL/EFL program directors, and administrators to find answers to critical questions.

Sure to get students engaged and thinking critically about CLD students, this text examines theory and research-based methods that are specific to and effective with CLD students and which promote linguistic and academic achievement. This text concentrates on ways in which the differential needs of CLD students can be mutually accommodated within various classroom settings. Focusing on answering the provocative question: “In what ways do the needs of CLD students differ from those of students whose culture and language correspond to the dominant culture/language in American society?,” students will gain an understanding of the complex realities that CLD students face as well as the differential language and transition needs of these students. The specific challenges and processes of the sociocultural, academic, cognitive, and linguistic dimensions of the CLD student biography are explored in the text.

In Educating English Learners, Joyce W. Nutta and her colleagues offer practical tools for helping schools and teachers successfully integrate English learners into mainstream classrooms. Drawing on the One Plus model presented in their award-winning book, Preparing Every Teacher to Reach English Learners, the authors now turn their attention to the needs of K–12 teachers who typically have two or three English learners in their classrooms. English learners are not a homogenous group, and the challenges they face vary tremendously. Nutta and her colleagues present protocols and case studies to help pre-service and in-service teachers understand the needs of English learners in their classrooms and differentiate instruction and assessment accordingly. Woven throughout the book are the stories of Gero, Edith, Tasir, and Edgar, four case study students of different ages, backgrounds, and levels of English proficiency. The authors show how the protocols they provide can be applied to adapt sample lessons for students like these, across a range of grade levels, subject areas, and pedagogical approaches. Finally, the authors show how the system can be applied school-wide for a collaborative approach to meeting English learners’ needs.

This mixed method dissertation analyzed patterns in the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills and Iowa Tests of Educational development scores of grade 4, 6, and 9 former ESOL students and students in the total population from 1993-2002 in the Rochester Public Schools, Rochester, Minnesota. Former ESOL students made more progress from grade 4 to grade 6 than students in the total population. Former ESOL students made significantly less progress from grade 6 to grade 9 than the total population. Certain professional educators in the Rochester Public Schools looked at the data and responded with opinions on reasons for the decline and recommendations to better support the academic success of former ESOL students. Opinions on reasons for the decline include gaps in background information, lack of support, approach to the reading task, listening skills, flawed ESOL program exit criteria, weak connections to school, cultural mismatch, issues of motivation, and lack of opportunity to develop cognitive skills. Recommendations to improve the reading skills of former ESOL students include ways to reduce gaps in background information and improving support from the ESOL program, mainstream teachers, home, the school administration, and the community.
