This series includes 4 DVDs (see ordering information below for individual videos).

One of the surest ways to facilitate the success of English language learners--both as students and later as adults--is to help them develop language and reading skills in English as well as in their native language. Many schools, however, are having trouble accommodating these students because teachers are trying to apply traditional techniques to literacy and learning that don't necessarily work well with ELL students. ELL Literacy Interventions, will give your teachers the necessary theories, strategies, and support to implement a successful literacy program for ELL students in their classrooms. Not only will your teachers glean valuable information from experts, but they will also witness experienced teachers putting these ideas into practice in their classrooms. The teachers highlighted in this series teach at Hillcrest Elementary School in Lawrence, Kansas--a school that successfully accommodates an array of culturally diverse learners representing more than 40 different languages!
