Ensuring Academic Literacy for ELL Students
Perez, Della; Holmes, Melissa
American Secondary Education, v38 n2 p32-43 Spr 2010
Ensuring that English language learning (ELL) students have equal access to content-area curriculum continues to be a challenge for many secondary educators. Although efforts to develop students' English skills are well intentioned, they frequently fall short of addressing each of the four interrelated dimensions of the culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) student biography: the sociocultural, linguistic, academic, and cognitive dimensions. Educators' attention to each of these dimensions enables students to develop the academic literacy needed for success in the secondary content-area classroom.
