- English Language Learners: Teaching Strategies that Work
This learner-empowering text by Larry Ferlazzo offers educators a five-step methodology for teaching that builds on students' assets rather than viewing ELLs through the typical lens of "deficits". The five principles around which the process revolves are: building relationships, accessing prior knowledge through student stories, developing student leadership, learning by doing, and reflection. The book emphasizes "high-order" thinking skills. In addition to providing detailed lessons, the book shares a framework teachers can use to create their own lessons, and it shows how to take advantage of technology and games as teaching tools.

School communities that embark on this initiative begin with a prescribed survey, a diagnostic instrument that provides objective data on 42 indicators of school quality that define high performing schools. The indicators are clustered into six integrated keys.
