"The 6 Principles for exemplary teaching of English learners elaborated in these pages provide an evidence-based foundation for schools to examine their own instructional practice and work collaboratively with colleagues, parents, and policymakers to enable English learners to acquire strong social and academic language proficiency...My expectation is that this lucid and inspirational book will act as a catalyst for a process of collective pedagogical inquiry in schools across the United States and internationally." - Jim Cummins, University of Toronto, Canada
