“Calderón and Tartaglia provide valuable, research-informed, practical ideas for fostering learners' social, emotional, and language development in a way that recognizes learners' diverse cultural backgrounds and strengths and promotes equity.”

Kent Lee, assistant professor, University of Alberta

“For every secondary content area teacher who has ever asked, 'But HOW exactly am I supposed to support EL literacy development in my classroom?' here is the help you have been waiting for. Robust background information and longitudinal research provide a convincing rationale for making time in content area classes to support all learners to become more proficient readers, writers, speakers, and listeners to accelerate academic progress as well as enhance English acquisition for all.”

Susan Adams, associate professor and faculty director of diversity, Butler University

“In this book, Calderón and Tartaglia eloquently show educators how to provide multilingual learners rich academic and social-emotional learning so they leave our schools reading at grade level, with strong self-management abilities and sound relationship skills.”
