This resource provides strategies and tools for using collaboration and co-teaching between general education teachers and ESL specialists to better serve the needs of English learners.

"This book is a road map for collaborative practice with a focus on English language learners. The vignettes offer a window into the complex and diverse challenges of teaching in linguistically and culturally diverse contexts. The what, when, where, how, and why of collaborative practice are discussed, and the book provides valuable online resources and helpful references for further research and exploration." (Dorit Kaufman, Professor of Linguistics, Director of Professional Educational Program)

"Andrea Honigsfeld and Maria Dove highlight the importance of a whole-school approach to the teaching of ELLs where the collective expertise of teachers is harnessed through collaboration and co-teaching. This approach ensures that ELL students are not isolated from their peers and all teachers gain access to instructional strategies that promote student engagement and accelerated academic development." (Jim Cummins, Professor)
