Dr. Cardenas-Hagan addresses the literacy foundational skills needed to enhance reading outcomes for the more than 5 million ELs. She addresses the critical features of instruction in literacy for ELs- including the cross-linguistic transfer of knowledge of phonological awareness in multiple languages. In addition to foundational skills; the book addresses reading fluency and entire chapters devoted to spelling and writing-often not adequately addressed considering the reciprocal roles of reading and writing. Essential to a complete book on teaching literacy to ELs is a significant focus on vocabulary instruction. She includes resources; printables and websites to assist teachers in meeting the needs of their students.
