Summer Reading for English-Language-Learner Educators

By Corey Mitchell — July 14, 2017 1 min read

That time between the end of the school year and the start of the next can be achingly long for English-language-learner educators looking for insights on how to better serve their students.

To fill that void, here are links to stories, reports, and opinion pieces on English-learners and immigrant students we’ve spotted over the past couple of weeks with a few stories from the EdWeek ELL archives sprinkled in.

From deep-dive investigations and analyses of ELL education to how-to videos, we hope there’s something here for every ELL educator.

We’d like to make this a biweekly feature on the Learning the Language blog. So, if you have suggestions to add to our next reading roundup, please reach out via Twitter @c_c_mitchell or email, cmitchell@epe.org.
