Building upon the theoretical and practical foundation outlined in their previous book, Educating English Learners, the authors show classroom teachers how to develop a repertoire of instructional techniques that address K–12 English learners (ELs) at different English proficiency and grade levels, and across subject areas.


Expertly written and elegantly crafted, Show, Tell, Build is a comprehensive guide for English learner instruction, K–12. Rather than a random collection of strategies, subject teachers and administrators will discover a framework for teaching ELs by design. The two governing protocols organize instructional tools and techniques purposefully and strategically to ensure significant academic gains. — Paul Boyd-Batstone, professor and chair of the Department of Teacher Education, California State University Long Beach

Show, Tell Build is a logic map for each EL-integrated classroom in the country! This book provides twenty high-yield strategies, tools, and resources that result in success in meeting grade-level and language demands in each area of content for each EL. It is a must-have for all educators who understand that ‘The same is not enough!’ for our ELs. — Natasa Karac, K-12 ESOL/Title III specialist, Pinellas County Schools, Florida

This book could be extremely beneficial for teachers, especially content area teachers, who have realized that the success of their EL students rests on the ability of teachers to provide them with access to classroom instruction and assessments. — Stephanie Garrone-Shufran, Teachers College Record
