In Educating English Learners, Joyce W. Nutta and her colleagues offer practical tools for helping schools and teachers successfully integrate English learners into mainstream classrooms. Drawing on the One Plus model presented in their award-winning book, Preparing Every Teacher to Reach English Learners, the authors now turn their attention to the needs of K–12 teachers who typically have two or three English learners in their classrooms.


This timely volume addresses not only what every classroom teacher needs to know about teaching English learners but, even more fundamentally, what they can do individually and collectively to put this knowledge into action in the classroom…Educating English Learners represents an invaluable resource for educators committed to implementing the Common Core State Standards in linguistically diverse schools. — Jim Cummins, professor, Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, University of Toronto

This warm, wise, and practical book demystifies language acquisition and academic literacy development. It puts practical tools in the hands of mainstream teachers to empower their students in the standards-based classroom. — Elizabeth O’Dowd, professor of applied linguistics/TESOL programs director, Saint Michael’s College

This book is the foundational, comprehensive guide to ensuring the success of English learners in mainstream classrooms! Drawing on carefully developed protocols and authentic student stories, the authors skillfully blend the how of instruction and the why of understanding to enable teachers to reach ELs at multiple proficiency levels within language-diverse K–12 classrooms. — Julia A. Correia, director, ESL Graduate Academy, Henderson State University, and Arkansas TESOL Outstanding Educator

Educating English Learners is a powerful tool for new teachers, veteran teachers, and campus administrators in the quest for potent student learning. — Heather D. Carnes, assistant principal of curriculum and instruction, Robert E. Lee High School, Tyler, Texas
