This article focuses on the process of promoting academic achievement for second-language learners by imaginatively connecting expository comprehension. The goals of this article are: (1) to increase understanding of instructional strategies among teachers at all levels that impact on reading comprehension in the content areas for second language speakers of English; (2) to provide curiosity and insight into the development of comprehensive instructional programs for linguistically and culturally diverse students; and (3) to suggest instructional strategies for what the teacher does during instruction and student activities (what the students do during instruction).
