This book provides a variety of strategies and action items to collaborate with teachers.
Why do English language learners struggle with reading?
This textbook is a wonderful resource that covers all research related to why ELls struggle with reading. It also helps separate what we all sometimes wonder about: is it a disability or a language issue?
