Recently, Mary Ann Zehr (the author of the must-read Learning The Language blog) wrote about The American Institutes For Research expanding their interest in English Language Learners.

I had never heard of the group, but apparently it’s a pretty big outfit. They have a webpage with some nice ELL resources. I particularly liked Common Assumptions vs. the Evidence: English Language Learners in the United States and their Common ELL Terms and Definitions.

I’m going to add their special webpage to The Best Ways To Keep-Up With Current ELL/ESL/EFL News & Research and their glossary to The Best Guides To ESL/EFL/ELL Terminology.
