Leading Academic Achievement for English Language Learners: A Guide for Principals
Betty J. Alford and Mary Catherine Niño present an informative guide that will provide administrators important insights on the structural and strategic changes needed to create an environment in which ELLs will succeed. Some of these approaches focus creating a culture of academic achievement for ELLs; others focus on building capacity and examining opportunities for school improvement while meeting the needs of ELLs. The authors provide detailed rubrics, tools, and lists of recommended resources/websites to supplement the content of each chapter. Excerpts from the first two chapters are available from Google books.
