View Sample Pages Drawing on more than fifteen years’ experience teaching English language learners, Marilyn Pryle has designed and classroom-tested these ten writing assignments that support the particular needs of ELLs. Each assignment includes whole-class lessons to introduce the topic and teach about genre; leveled mini-lessons that address students’ needs at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced language-proficiency levels; reproducible prewriting activities; and a rubric. Filled with scaffolding ideas, conferring tips, student work, and more, this resource gives teachers the tools to help their English Language Learners develop effective writing skills. 128 pages.

Complete each writing activity yourself and save all prewriting and drafts. Show these to students (via overhead or handout) so they can see the writing process. You can also deliberately model specific vocabulary, conventions, sentence structures, and organizational patterns.
