Targeted and Relevant Instruction
Even with no formal ESL training, teachers can learn to effectively teach their English learners with Everyday English Plus.
The Teacher's Edition guides instruction throughout each scenario.
Teachers told us: "We must have lessons that include instruction of academic language—without that—our students can't be successful in their other classes."
Research recommends that the following be incorporated into instruction for English learners:
- All middle and secondary school classrooms must address the language and literacy skills students need for content-area learning
- Academic vocabulary
- Conversational skills (the language of print differs from conversational language)
- Vocabulary used across academic disciplines
- Progress monitoring and valid assessment
