presents a practical, flexible model for infusing English learner (EL) instruction into teacher education courses.


Praise

A must-read for everyone involved in teacher preparation. This book challenges us to weave the reality of today’s classrooms and the needs of English learners into the preparation of all of our prospective teachers. It shows us how to truly ‘infuse’ EL strategies across the curriculum and provides creative tools to do so. Insightful, practical, grounded, yet innovative! — Carine M. Feyten, dean, School of Education, Health and Society, and professor, Foreign Language Education, Miami University

This is a cohesive guide that shows educator preparation programs and district trainers how to successfully meet the language and cultural needs of English learners in the K–12 classroom. The One Plus model solidifies EL infusion through a collaborative, flexible, and interdisciplinary plan. It is a professional development manual for educators across disciplines and at all levels. — Jane Govoni, associate professor, Saint Leo University, and ESOL consultant, Florida Department of Education
