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.
