“Informative chapters by well-known authors address a variety of topics related to classroom practice, and provide a useful mix of theory and application. Many of the chapters include useful tools that can be adapted for the reader’s own purposes. An additional strength of the book is the attention it gives to often-ignored areas such as ELLs in special education, teacher professional development, and parent and family considerations. Highly valuable for teacher education courses and practicing teachers.”

—Robert Rueda, PhD, Stephen H. Crocker Professor of Education, University of Southern California


“This is exactly the text I've been looking for to use in my undergraduate teacher education and master's-level certification courses. It has a great blend of theory and teacher-tested strategies for working with a variety of ELLs. I especially appreciate the chapters on ELLs with disabilities and Native Americans, two populations overlooked in most textbooks, as well as the broad span of grade levels and ages represented across the chapters. I am thrilled to see sound research and practical strategies presented in a manner that will be so accessible to our preservice teachers.”

—Margarita Jimenez-Silva, EdD, College of Teacher Education and Leadership, Arizona State University


Best Practices in ELL Instruction is a rich, invaluable resource for teacher educators, literacy specialists, and, most important, classroom teachers. Leading ESL and bilingual education experts address relevant research, theory, strategic teaching, special populations, and teacher preparation. Both scholarly and accessible, this book is certain to become a classic in the field of language teaching and learning.”
