School Librarians & English Language Learners
Ferlazzo, Larry
Library Media Connection, v29 n3 p24-25 Nov-Dec 2010
Over 10 percent of all students in K-12 schools in the United States are English Language Learners (ELLs) today, and, according to the Educational Testing Service, that number is expected to grow to 25 percent by 2025. Much of that growth is happening in communities (and in schools) that do not have a history of large immigrant populations. Given these demographics, the author considers different strategies school librarians can use to effectively assist ELLs and their teachers. In order to assist ELLs, the author suggests to build a library of ELL resources and have age-appropriate bilingual and graphic novel books available for students.
