How the ELL Brain Learns free pdf "This book is one of the best I've read on how the brain functions in second language learners and is invaluable for understanding ELLs with learning disabilities." (Irma Guadarrama, Professor University of Texas Pan American College of Education). "David Sousa puts all of the research about the brain together to show the process of learning multiple languages and offers ways to implement effective teaching strategies with quality instruction." (Sharon Latimer, ESL Teacher Plano ISD, TX). Raise your ELL success quotient and watch student achievement soar! Teachers are more likely to succeed if they have a deeper understanding of the challenges students face in trying to learn English and course content simultaneously. "How the ELL Brain Learns" combines current research on how the brain learns language with strategies for teaching English language learners in K-12 classrooms. Award-winning author and brain research expert David A. Sousa describes the linguistic reorganization needed to acquire another language after the age of 5 years. He supplements this information with immediately applicable tools, including: a self-assessment tool for gauging your understanding of how the brain learns languages- ready-to-use brain-compatible strategies for teaching English learners across the curriculum- and, an entire chapter about how to detect English language learning problems, with sections on the social, cultural, and physical causes. Each chapter includes teaching tips that translate the research into step-by-step classroom applications. Also included are intervention strategies to use with struggling ELLs, including methods for working with older students.
