Next February, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary! Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.” Each week, I’ll be re-posting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years.

In 2012, Katie Hull and I published the first book in our joint ELL “trilogy” :).

It’s title is The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide: Ready-to-Use Strategies, Tools, and Activities for Teaching English Language Learners of All Levels and you can see a ton of free excerpts, as well as downloading for free all of its many student hand-outs, here.

That book was followed this year by the publication of Navigating The Common Core With English Language Learners.

And, with luck, we’ll finish the third book – our most ambitious one yet – by the end of next summer, and it will be published in the Spring of 2018.
