Teaching Content to English Learners in the Era of the Common Core Standards
What are instructional implications for College and Career Ready Standards, such as the Common Core, on English learners (ELs) and their teachers? This question is addressed in an essay by researchers from ETS. R&D Connections, a publication series from ETS Research & Development, examines research conducted by ETS scientists and is written in nontechnical language. This issue highlights research on ELs and what content-area teachers need to know and be able to do in order to meet the needs of their EL students in achieving the new standards.
