The achievement gap is a language gap—and you can bridge it!


Mastering academic language is the "make or break" skill for school success.

Readers will find:

Practical teaching strategies based on the four key facets of academic language fluency
Richly detailed case studies about students’ experiences with academic language across the content areas
Guidance on family involvement
Thought-provoking study questions, along with performance assessment tools
