With the growing population of English learners (ELs) in classrooms, all teachers must be language teachers. This book presents an approach that every teacher can use to ensure that English learners access the core curriculum and achieve at high levels.

Learn why response to intervention (RTI) is the ideal framework for supporting English learners. Find clear guidelines for distinguishing between lack of language proficiency and learning disability. Follow the application and effectiveness of RTI through numerous classroom examples and the stories of four representative students of varying ages, nationalities, and language proficiency levels. Throughout the book, the authors illustrate the benefits of implementing RTI in a professional learning community (PLC). It becomes clear that teachers who are using RTI to support ELs should themselves be relying on the support of their colleagues in a PLC.


  • The four categories of ELs that teachers will encounter
  • Approaches to language development (such as instruction in English or bilingual programs)
  • What English language proficiency means
  • The importance of valuing diversity
  • Culturally responsive teaching
  • Working within a PLC structure to support ELs
  • Screening and progress monitoring
  • Distinguishing between lack of English proficiency and learning disability


  • Thorough treatment of both the RTI model and the unique needs of ELs
  • Clear and detailed explanation of the three tiers of RTI
  • Real-life examples of supports and interventions for broad range of ELs
  • End-of-chapter solutions for teaching ELs
