Supporting students toward English proficiency

In this 15-hour, asynchronous book study course, authors Tan Huynh and Beth Skelton address the largest subgroup of English learners, those currently labeled as long-term English learners. In their book, Huynh and Skelton intentionally use the term experienced multilinguals as an affirmation that these students are capable of reaching the highest academic standards under the optimal conditions. Huynh and Skelton’s book guides teachers in cultivating these conditions.

A copy of this NEW book is included in the cost of the course!
