Balancing Reading and Language Learning by Mary Cappellini
This study guide lays out ways to explore each chapter of Mary’s book. These explorations use a variety of lenses for reflecting on practice and planning for implementation that effectively meets the needs of students. This guide is designed to help teachers facilitate conversation and investigation with colleagues to deepen thinking about support for English language learners. When planning staff development opportunities, it is powerful to have educators focus on three to four children throughout the process.
