As a teacher

This user friendly guide presents a flexible framework and checklists that teacher teams can use to improve English language learner (ELL) instruction and achievement. The 12 Key Practices Framework is divided into four parts:

  1. Shared practices at the district, school, and classroom levels
  2. Common classroom practices for all ELL educators
  3. Core instructional practices of every program for ELLs
  4. Organizing the key practices into effective program configurations

Each chapter is organized around the implementation guideposts, and each section suggests specific planning processes, strategic how-to information, tasks, and examples that demonstrate how the key practice may be implemented.
