Build the bridges for English language learners to reach success!

Ten years ago, the first edition of Margo Gottlieb’s Assessing English Language Learners changed the dialogue about how educators envision educational equity for students. Since then, the ELL and dual language student populations have grown exponentially, and so has the need for forward-thinking and effective approaches to facilitating students’ academic language development alongside their content knowledge.
This thoroughly updated edition of Gottlieb’s classic delivers a complete set of tools, techniques, and ideas for planning and implementing instructional assessment. The book includes:
  • A focus on academic language use in every discipline, from mathematics to social studies, within and across language domains
  • Emphasis on linguistically and culturally responsive assessment as a key driver for measuring academic achievement
  • A reconceptualization of assessment “as,” “for,” and “of” learning
  • Reflection questions to stimulate discussion around assessment policies and practices to maximize opportunities for teacher input and student engagement
This book is an essential resource for pre-service and in-service teachers, educator teams, and school leaders striving toward equity in every classroom.
