Notes

Abstract: English Language Learners of all ages and levels face a challenge when they encounter academically rich texts. To understand more about what literacy practices work with these students and to explore effective supports to inform the authors' preservice teachers, University of North Texas at Dallas faculty read and discussed 'Academic Language for English Language Learners and Struggling Readers' (Freeman & Freeman, 2009). Three themes emerged from the authors' reflexive discussions: Nurturing is developing readers and writers, nurturing is giving access to powerful language, and nurturing is preparing effective teachers for a labor intensive profession. As English language arts and content area teachers, it is crucial that we continue to work diligently toward identifying and implementing practices for English Language Learners that are challenging for this ever-growing population of students.
