Extremely Positive Review Of Our ESL/ELL Book

Author: Larry Ferlazzo

I'm a high school teacher in Sacramento, CA.


  1. Nice! I can’t wait!

  2. I have my copy!

    First impression: I like the larger, easy-to-read font choice. Thank you!

    So far, the “I am” Project (page 21), Chapter 3, pages 198, 199, Chapter 11 = are those that have the most penciled in margin notes and/or post-it reference tabs.

    It is one of those books that even a very experienced ESL / ESOL / ELL / EFL (whatever acronym you use) teacher/facilitator will be likely to find useful to review, even if just to be reminded of a few tricks that she or he has not used in awhile, to become more aware of research supporting the “why we do and try to do what we do and try to do.”

    As someone who has been a fan of Larry Ferlazzo for years, I felt I owed it to him and to visitors to my bookshelves to purchase a copy of this text. As an adult ELL educator, even though the book is marked for Grades 4 -12, many chapters and much of the information has relevancy.

    This is a text that is not likely to overwhelm newbies and/or classroom volunteers — a quick flip-though may well lead to a careful reading of the Contents pages, and then to self-selected study.

    The Afterword is well chosen.

    The Notes section will make you wish for access to a hyper-linked copy of same!

    This is a great text to have near you while lesson-planning, at hand during peer-to-peer / staff committee meetings, a text to revisit frequently.


  3. Hello Larry,

    It seems to be a very interesting book to read. I would like to have it. How can I get it? I’m living in Mexico.

  4. Hi Larry,
    We carry your book on our website It’s a great resource for our underfunded and hard-working ESL teachers nationwide!
