English Language Learners in Literacy Workshops
Many mainstream classroom teachers haven’t had the opportunity to develop strategies to effectively teach the growing number of language learners in our schools. And language specialists aren’t always familiar with the instructional and management frameworks that work well for mainstream teachers. Marsha Riddle Buly, a mainstream classroom teacher who became a reading specialist and then a specialist in bilingual/ELL education, shows how reading, writing, and language workshops can be used to help language learners in mainstream K–8 classrooms.
Riddle Buly outlines literacy workshop formats and offers clear explanations of how workshops align with the research on effective instruction of language learners, including the Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP).
English Language Learners in Literacy Workshops supports both K–8 mainstream classroom teachers and ELL specialists as they plan differentiated and powerful lessons to meet the needs of all students in a manageable, effective way.
