New standards place extra language, literacy, thinking, and content demands on students, especially English learners and struggling readers. Language, literacy, thinking, and content are highly interconnected--and authentic communication plays a central role in their learning. This site provides information and tools to help educators accelerate and deepen all four at once as we work with all students to improve their lives in school settings.
This site is focused on helping educators develop their practices and expand their sets of effective tools for teaching diverse learners. Feel free to download the tools and resources on this site for classroom and professional development purposes. Also feel free to contact me with any questions about the resources or requests for additional materials or tools.
