Do you know when ELLs have special education needs, and what interventions to use?
This book helps special education specialists learn how to assess the specific nature of an ELL's learning challenges, create a continuum of appropriate interventions, and measure the ELL's response to those interventions.
- Team activities for professional development
- Checklists and other reproducible tools
- True-story chronicles for discussion
- Discussion questions to help teams apply the concepts to their own student population
The second edition includes extensive new discussion of RtI and standardized testing, now widely used for diagnostic purposes, and clearly describes negative consequences for ELLs of this dominant approach. This powerful guide offers a comprehensive alternative for educators dedicated to equity for all ELLs, including those experiencing challenges at school.
