Differentiated Literacy Strategies for English Language Learners, Grades K–6



October 2011 | 232 pages | Corwin

Effective ways to help ELLs excel

As you tailor your teaching to engage the increasing number of English language learners, the key to success is focusing on literacy. Adapted from the highly successful Differentiated Literacy Strategies for Student Growth and Achievement in Grades K–6, this book provides a wealth of grade-specific literacy strategies that not only increase student achievement but also increase it rapidly. The authors provide proven practical tools for differentiating instruction to meet language and individual learning styles. Teachers will find an instructional and assessment framework designed to promote these critical competencies:

  • Functional literacy in phonics, spelling, and reading
  • Content-area literacy for vocabulary, concept attainment, and comprehension
  • Technological literacy for information searching, evaluation, and synthesis
  • Innovative literacy for creativity, growth, and lifelong learning

Included are more than 100 planning models, matrixes, rubrics, and checklists. Teachers with students who have had interrupted formal education or come from newly arrived immigrant populations will find a wealth of proven methods for giving ELLs every opportunity to succeed.
