English language learner (ELL) achievement continues to be a top priority for schools, districts, and states. This comprehensive course text prepares all K–12 educators to meet state competencies in ELL education and to think critically about research, theory, policy, and practice. There is a focus on sociocultural theories and approaches for educating ELLs, teaching vocabulary and oral and written language for academic purposes across content areas, and differentiating instruction and assessment by language development level.
