“A 'must read' for all teachers of ELLs in mainstream and ESL classrooms. Employing realistic classroom examples, the authors bring to life the theory and methods of ELL writing instruction. The book presents step-by-step ways to implement innovative methods and activities, emphasizing the importance of carefully planning instruction and creating a culture of collaboration in a school. I found the cross-cultural information about writing very important for understanding the interaction of native language and writing development in English. I would use this text in my ESL methods class to complement a more general textbook. I could definitely see my students creating lesson plans using the principles that Lenski and Verbruggen outline.”

—Carla Paciotto, EdD, Department of Educational and Interdisciplinary Studies, Western Illinois University


“Lenski and Verbruggen have tackled the subject of writing for English language learners in a way that few others have. Starting with engaging classroom vignettes that readers can relate to, the authors continue with a toolbox of practical and effective strategies that can be used immediately by teachers who are working to enhance their writing instruction. Teachers in all subject areas will find these strategies useful.”

—Penny Plavala, MEd, school improvement specialist, Multnomah Education Service District, Portland, Oregon


“The demand for this book has been loud and clear from teachers, teacher educators, researchers, school administrators, and educational policy developers. Lenski and Verbruggen focus on real-world contexts in their discussion of how to teach English language learners to write well. The instructional strategies, student activities, and assessment tools are grounded in current theory, research, and best practices. This book exemplifies clear writing and clear thinking.”

—Paul Boyd-Batstone, PhD, Department of Teacher Education, California State University, Long Beach
