Increasingly as important to educators as the Common Core State Standards, the new national anchor for curriculum, instruction and assessment have set a high bar of rigorous and challenging content.

While most educational researchers and practitioners agree that that mastery of academic language is the key to students' academic success, many teachers are not well-versed in its major components and need to learn how to integrate them into curriculum and instructional assessment.

One of a seven book series, this text gives guidance to educators in how to target academic language in planning for student learning for grades 6-8. It provides a concise, logical, and practical approach to identifying grade-level academic language associated with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, academic content standards, as well as English Language Proficiency Standard, to readily incorporate into teaching and learning.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"These volumes are packed with practical ideas that will help all teachers attend to language within their classrooms from the discourse level to word/phrase levels. This is a road map for teaching Common Core content in language rich classrooms, and hence a resource every teacher needs within arm's reach! It's all here and clearly presented; this is pure gold for everyone who teaches students to speak, listen, read and write in school, with special attention to English language learners." -- Tim Boals, Executive Director
"Academic Language in Diverse Classrooms is an invaluable resource for all K through 8th grade teachers, especially those working with diverse students. This book gives teachers both a clear explanation of academic language and specific strategies they can apply in their own classrooms. Throughout the book, contributors provide specific connections between the Common Core State Standards and Language Development Standards. Each chapter helps educators understand students' academic language needs and, through a variety of classroom examples from each grade level, shows teachers how to teach academic language through content." -- Yvonne Freeman, Professor of Bilingual Education
