Veteran educators Barbara Law and Mary Eckes present an in-depth discussion of what assessment really means for ELLs and ELL educators in this follow-up to The More-Than-Just Surviving Handbook. One of the strengths of this guide is that Law and Eckes simultaneously explore the big picture (what teachers need to know and trends in assessment), the programmatic implications (how to grade and when to exit students), and hands-on strategies regarding the details and mechanics of assessment (how to record your observations and present information to stakeholders).
The newest edition of this helpful handbook presents a number of strategies for addressing daily challenges that both ESL and mainstream teachers face in the classroom, such as: How do I prepare for a new ESL student? How do I balance the needs of students at different reading levels? How do I manage difficult classroom behavior? A number of appendices and forms are included as well.
