Transforming Schools for English Learners: A Comprehensive Framework for School Leaders
This second edition of this popular book supports educators to design and enact policies, practices, and structures for multilingual learners (MLs) to feel a sense of safety, belonging, value, and competence.
Topics explored in the book include:
- a discussion of the changes to federal and state policies and their impact on MLs and their families
- strategies to move from a deficit- to an asset-based approach that values multilingualism
- nine principles to design and deliver high-quality lessons in multiple languages and across disciplines

Reflecting changing trends in leadership, this new edition supports superintendents, principals, curriculum supervisors, coaches, mentors, teachers, and other stakeholders in their collaborative efforts to create and sustain successful language assistance programs.
