For all teachers, including those who have not been trained to use ESL tools, Persida and William Himmele (education and ESL certificate program, Millersville U.) offer a research-based framework for helping English language learners (ELLs) improve their language skills and content comprehension. The framework consists of content reading strategies, higher-order thinking skills, assessment tools, total participation techniques, and scaffolding strategies, and can be used with English language learners, students with special needs, and native English speakers. Worksheets, assessment logs, activities, and an overview of ELL characteristics are included.
