Title: Preparing Quality Educators for English Language Learners
Subtitle: Research , Policy, and Practice
Edited By: Kip Téllez
Hersh C. Waxman
Description:

This volume brings together a broad range of academics, school-based
educators, and policymakers to address research, policy, and practice
issues related to improving the education of English language learners in
U.S. schools today. It emphasizes throughout that instructional
improvements cannot be achieved via curriculum alone--teachers are key to
improving the education of this large and growing population of students.
The focus is on the quality of preparation and development of pre-service
and in-service educators.

Contributors include leading educators and researchers in the field and
from nationally recognized professional development programs. Their
recommendations range from promising new professional development practices
to radical changes in current state and federal policy.

"Preparing Quality Educators for English Language Learners: Research,
Policy, and Practice" is an important resource to help teacher educators,
administrators, and policymakers address critical issues as they develop
programs for English language learners.
