It’s two year’s late because we edited the other books in the “Toolbox” series, but the second edition of The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide is just about ready!

We expect to make the final manuscript submission in mid-September, and it is scheduled to be published in the first part of 2022.

In fact, you can already pre-order it on Amazon.

Here’s how the publisher is describing it:

The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide: Ready-to-Use Strategies, Tools, and Activities for Teaching English Language Learners of All Levels, 2nd Edition offers readers a comprehensive range of instructional strategies and educational resources for teaching English. The newly revised 2nd Edition includes brand new chapters, including on:

• Working with Long-Term English Language Learners

 • Teaching English internationally

• Teaching Elementary Age ELLs

 • Teaching Adult ELLs

 • Teaching ELLs with learning challenges

 • Culturally Responsive Instruction

 • Effective online instruction

 In addition to the new chapters, The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide contains updated material on topics including math, science, social studies, Common Core Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards and 150 pages of new, highly engaging content. An essential resource for anyone involved in teaching English as a Second Language to students of all ages, this book is perfect for general education teachers and ESL specialists for students in grades six through twelve. It’s also highly instructive for teachers of adult ESL classes, elementary and teacher educators, and resource specialists.


Our publisher released the first version of the distance learning chapter last summer for free, and you can download it here.
