ABSTRACT
The article discusses research regarding the effectiveness of an educational intervention to instill literacy skills in English language learners (ELLs). The author suggests that ELLs face difficulties regarding vocabulary, comprehension and fluency. She comments on randomized controlled trials that show how academic achievement is improved through reading instruction for small groups with common academic needs and discusses how formative assessment techniques, such as benchmark tests, can reveal student needs and ensure teaching methods are effective.
