English learners are not a homogenous group, and the challenges they face vary tremendously. Below, you will find a list of link compiled by Dr. Nutta and her colleagues to help pre-service and in-service teachers understand the needs of English learners in their classrooms. Following the structure of the book Educating English Learners, What Every Classroom Teacher Needs to Know, the following resources have been divided into two parts. The first one focuses on the teaching of academic subjects to English learners and the second on the Teaching of Language Arts & Literacy.
Because English learners are not a homogenous group, our team compiled resources covering different English learners’ background.
The links below provide more information on major topics addressed in the Introduction chapter of Educating English Learners, What Every Classroom Teacher Needs to Know, with links to freely available resources that can be used for further study or to activities that can be viewed or conducted in classes or workshops. At the bottom of this page, we share links to online resources for classroom use with English learners K-12.

In Educating English Learners, Joyce W. Nutta and her colleagues offer practical tools for helping schools and teachers successfully integrate English learners into mainstream classrooms. Drawing on the One Plus model presented in their award-winning book, Preparing Every Teacher to Reach English Learners, the authors now turn their attention to the needs of K–12 teachers who typically have two or three English learners in their classrooms.
Woven throughout the book are the stories of Gero, Edith, Tasir, and Edgar, four case study students of different ages, backgrounds, and levels of English proficiency. The authors show how the protocols they provide can be applied to adapt sample lessons for students like these, across a range of grade levels, subject areas, and pedagogical approaches. Finally, the authors show how the system can be applied school-wide for a collaborative approach to meeting English learners’ needs.
Each chapter webpage provides links to pages for every topic listed. On the topic page, a brief narrative summary provides an overview and then major subtopics are listed as headings, with links to outside resources.
