“I highly recommend this book to high school educators who are honestly trying to understand what lesson elements are needed to truly support the language development of English learners while maintaining expectations for rigorous content learning. Margarita Calderon and her colleagues have written a book that tightly connects research to practice in two critical areas—social and emotional learning and content-literacy demands—using a direct step-by-step lesson-design approach. The authors provide practical examples, templates, and clearly described processes and procedures. This would be a great choice for a collaborative book study, for new teachers and for veteran teachers seeking to improve the overall effectiveness of their instruction.”

Julie Meltzer, director of curriculum, Mount Desert Island Regional School System
