The Three Best Ways Teachers Can Encourage Support for English Language Learners is the title of my latest BAM! Radio Show.

I chat with Jennifer Connors, Diane Staehr Fenner, and Sydney Snyder for ten minutes and, even though the title focuses on “teachers,” we spend most of the time discussing how administrators can help and support us in our work with ELLs in the classroom.

Check out my guests’ written commentaries in a future Education Week Teacher post.
