for English Language Learners
|Grades K–2||Grades 3–6|
"We have created the lessons in these books to help teachers give their English language learners the conceptual background and English language structures they need to collaborate fully in each Toolkit lesson." —Stephanie Harvey, Anne Goudvis, Brad Buhrow, & Anne Upczak-Garcia
The Scaffolding The Comprehension Toolkit for English Language Learners books are designed to help students unpack the vocabulary and language structures in every Toolkit lesson. A consistent mix of minilessons and strategies will help your English language learners actively participate in every Toolkit lesson and express what they fully comprehend.
- Preview minilessons build background knowledge and introduce the concepts, vocabulary, and language structures used in the Toolkit lesson.
- Teach strategies integrate the preview activities into the Toolkit lessons and help you optimize Toolkit practices to support ELLs.
- Extended activities provide explicit practice with grammar, syntax and oracy, as well as content and comprehension extensions.
Accompanying CD-ROMs provide the teaching tools in an electronic format.
