Informed additive literacy instruction for ells

Eurydice Bouchereau Bauer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There are numerous reasons why schools struggle to provide English-language learns (ELLs) with additive literacy instruction. One reason for this is the lack of available trained bilingual teachers, mainstream teachers who have not received adequate training on how to teach ELLs, and the current political climate that appears to support an English-only school environment. Despite these obstacles, it is important for all teachers to support additive literacy in their classrooms. Classrooms that promote additive literacy provide students with the means to connect what they know about literacy in one language to another language.
