This hands-on book offers teachers a much-needed resource that will help maximize learning for English Language Learners (ELLs). How to Teach English Language Learners draws on two wide-ranging teacher quality studies and profiles eight educators who have achieved exceptional results with their ELL students. Through highly readable portraits, the authors take readers into these teachers' classrooms, illustrating richly what it is they do differently that yields such great results from English learners. Because most teachers profiled work within a three-tiered Response-to-Intervention framework, the book shows how to implement RTI effectively with ELLs--from providing general reading instruction for the entire classroom to targeted interventions with struggling students. Written by noted ELL educators Diane Haager, Janette K. Klingner, and Terese Aceves, How to Teach English Language Learners is filled with inspiring success stories, teaching tips, activities, discussion questions, and reflections from these outstanding teachers.
Rose and Sage Baker, 17-year-old orphan twins with more money than God, are living the good life in decadent Palm Beach, Florida. Life is grand--until their purse string-controlling grandmother is infuriated by a Vanity Fair profile of the girls' unsavory exploits. Now, they'll lose their inheritances if they don't get into ultra-selective Duke University. Enter Megan Simms, a brainy, recent Yale grad who's drowning in school debt. For $75,000 dollars--enough to pay back her loans-- she must ensure the girls are accepted at Duke. This is no small feat, given that the twins cannot sit still longer than it takes to down a glass of Cristal. Megan is going to have to learn her Pucci from her Prada, and play by a whole different set of rules if she's going to whip these two into academic shape. Along the way, she just might discover that the twins aren't the only ones getting an education.

Thankfully, his childhood friend Charlotte Seavers had agreed-reluctantly-to a bargain. While Rafe would provide her with the home she'd lost, Charlotte would provide him with a chaperone for his unruly twin sisters.But who would chaperone Rafe? For the feisty young girl he remembered had blossomed into a sensual woman-a woman whose haunting beauty and deeply kept secrets drew him like no other. Charlotte had good reason to mistrust men-yet could Rafe's sizzling seduction convince her to give in to temptation?
Dr. Adler, in his discussion, extends and modernizes the argument for the existence of God developed by Aristotle and Aquinas. Without relying on faith, mysticism, or science (none of which, according to Dr. Adler, can prove or disprove the existence of God), he uses a rationalist argument to lead the reader to a point where he or she can see that the existence of God is not necessarily dependent upon a suspension of disbelief. Dr. Adler provides a nondogmatic exposition of the principles behind the belief that God, or some other supernatural cause, has to exist in some form. Through concise and lucid arguments, Dr. Adler shapes a highly emotional and often erratic conception of God into a credible and understandable concept for the lay person.
