Listening to Teachers of English Language Learners: Their Challenges, Experiences, and Needs. CenterView
Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning
A new survey of more than 5,000 teachers finds few professional development opportunities targeted on working effectively with second language learners. A lack of time and instructional resources also hamper teachers' ability to reach the nearly 1.6 million students designated as English learners in California's public schools. The teachers surveyed also said their efforts to teach English learners are complicated by their struggle to effectively communicate with the parents and families of English learning students.
