Includes Common Core Content

“I enjoyed reading this whole volume—it covers all the current topics in the field. The book's strength lies in its grounding in a comprehensive literacy development framework that integrates linguistic, psychological, sociological, cultural, and educational perspectives, and that views the teacher as a reflective practitioner and collaborator. All components of literacy (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing) are addressed, making the book a valuable resource for preservice and inservice elementary educators.”

—Margarita Calderón, PhD, Professor Emerita and Senior Research Scientist, School of Education, Johns Hopkins University

Literacy Development with English Learners, Second Edition, affords teachers, instructional coaches, and teacher educators the opportunity to have an up-to-date, research-based guide at their fingertips. This edition provides a thorough look at the critical components educators need to help our growing population of English learners achieve academic success. Taking a multifaceted approach that involves both classroom instruction and culturally relevant practices, the book provides usable suggestions for establishing an effective literacy program for English learners.”

—Lori Henry, EL Coordinator, Austin Public Schools, Minnesota

“I only wish this book were small enough to fit into my pocket, because it gives teachers, principals, and literacy coaches exactly what we need as we work every day to create the richest possible environments for English learners—and to deliver the kind of specific, targeted, explicit instruction that will accelerate their progress. The authors in this all-star cast draw on up-to-date research while keeping the hectic pace of classroom life in mind. The book is studded with stories of kids, lists of tips, and inspirational passages that can provide us with North Star guidance.”

—Lucy Calkins, PhD, Robinson Professor of Children’s Literature and Founding Director, Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, Teachers College, Columbia University

“Kudos to Helman and her contributors for providing a comprehensive and cohesive text designed for courses targeting the language and literacy development of ELs. The expanded second edition communicates theoretical foundations, positive dispositions, and research-based practices that preservice and inservice teachers can enact to upgrade instruction. This teacher-friendly book is infused with respect for students, teachers, and the processes they engage in to be successful.”

—Kathleen A. J. Mohr, EdD, School of Teacher Education and Leadership, Utah State University

“Offers literacy instructors contextualized discussions of the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and issues associated with teaching English language learners. The chapters include real-life scenarios that ground the content in relatable situations.”

—Kathryn Prater, PhD, elementary English teacher, The Magellan International School, Austin, Texas
