Now teachers can give fourth, fifth, and sixth graders the crucial vocabulary practice they need with this three-volume curriculum--proven equally effective for English-language learners (ELLs) and students whose first language is English. This program uses innovative approaches to help students build a toolbox of skills that let them decipher the meanings of unfamiliar words with confidence. Ideal for use in classrooms that include both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking ELLs, each curriculum combines teacher-directed instruction with cooperative group learning (proven effective for teaching heterogeneous groups of students) and individual activities for reinforcement. For each grade, teachers get an age-appropriate, 18-week curriculum that takes just 30 minutes a day. Each curriculum consists of eight regular lessons that take 2 week each (see sidebar) and are built around a section of a story, novel, or article; and two review lessons that take 1 week each and use new activities to reinforce what students have learned. All readings are reproduced in the books, so there's no need to purchase additional material.
