|This is an exciting time to be a teacher. The Common Core State Standards have invigorated the teaching profession. Yet teachers recognize the challenges these standards may present for educating children who are learning English as an additional language. The chapters in this volume provide concrete ideas for engaging English learners in a range of intellectually rich tasks using a variety of text types. Each chapter provides Reflection Questions and Action Plans that are useful for practicing teachers, pre-service teachers, graduate students, academics, researchers, and professional development providers.
