English Learners Academic Literacy and Thinking: Learning in the Challenge Zone by Pauline Gibbons. ISBN: 978-0325012032
Gibbons presents guidelines on designing long-term, high-quality instruction that simultaneously provides explicit scaffolding for English learners. Gibbons makes these guidelines an instructional reality through dozens of examples of rich activities and tasks that can be used across the curriculum and that support the learning of all students. English Learners, Academic Literacy, and Thinking supports teachers with doable plans for instruction, reflection questions for individual or group study together, and suggestions for further reading. The book is a valuable resource for in-service training and college courses and provides an ideal basis for a schoolwide response to the growing challenges of raising the achievement of English language learners.
