Preparing All Teachers to Meet the Needs of English Language Learners: Applying Research to Policy and Practice for Teacher Effectiveness - Preparing All Teachers to Meet the Needs of English Language Learners: Applying Research to Policy and Practice for Teacher Effectiveness - This report summarizes key findings drawn from the literature on promising practices that all teachers can employ when working with English Language Learners (ELLs). The authors recommend that in order to improve teacher effectiveness with ELL students, consistent and specific guidelines on the oral language, academic language, and cultural needs of ELLs be addressed. The authors also consider the degree to which that research is integrated into the preparation, certification, and evaluation of teachers as a means for improving educational outcomes for ELLs.
