Many books only focus on what to do. This book is different because it also dives into the why.
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) October 03, 2016
According to the U.S. Department of Education, the percentage of English learners (ELs) in U.S. public schools continues to rise. To help school leaders meet the needs of these learners, TESOL Press has released a new book, What School Leaders Need to Know About English Learners.
Co-published with the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), this new book offers school leaders the foundation, ideas, and strategies to improve outcomes for ELs and their teachers.
“Many books only focus on what to do. This book is different because it also dives into the why,” notes author Jan Edwards Dormer. “When school leaders understand how ELs learn, they become better equipped to make programmatic and instructional choices that will prove effective for the ELs in their particular context.”
School leaders are responsible for creating an environment of support for English learners – and teachers of English learners – but they often lack the resources and training necessary to help ELs reach their fullest potential. Complete with a professional development guide and “Grab and Go” online resources, this book seeks to fill the gap and help leaders empower their students and teachers.
“English learners enrich the fabric of our country,” says Rosa Aronson, TESOL Executive Director. “By supporting them, we help build a school culture of success, which, benefits all students.”
The book is available in both print and ebook (PDF) formats.
More information on this title and sample chapters are available through the TESOL Press Bookstore.
