Considerations for Literacy Coaches in Classrooms with English Language Learners
Escamilla, Kathy
Literacy Coaching Clearinghouse
This brief by the Literacy Coaching Clearinghouse addresses issues related to literacy coaching in classrooms where there are English Language Learners (ELLs). Briefly defined, an English Language Learner is a child whose native language is other than English and who is learning English as a second language. Moreover, ELLs are defined as students whose knowledge of English is so limited that they are likely to find their classroom experiences incomprehensible (Crawford, 2004). This brief discusses several of the major issues that literacy coaches may encounter in trying to assist classroom teachers with literacy instruction for ELLs in English medium classrooms. Suggestions for addressing these issues are also provided.
