Balancing Reading and Language Learning

A Resource for Teaching English Language Learners, K-5

"The beauty of Balancing Reading and Language Learning is very much in that balance Mary brings to teaching this rich population of learners. As I travel the country, more and more classrooms contain speakers of second languages. Balancing Reading and Language Learning is always my go-to suggestion. Combinning best practices for reading instruction with practical supports for students at all levels of language acquisition, this book is a master class in developing an inclusive and rich language classroom."
