Approaches to Writing Instruction for Adolescent English Language Learners: A Discussion of Recent Research and Practice Literature in Relation to Nationwide Standards on Writing

Description

Abstract:
English language learners in U.S. middle and high schools face significant challenges from state writing assessments, and data suggest that they do not fare well. This report looks at writing standards for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, and identifies six major topics and themes in the standards. It also reviews research and practice literature focused on adolescents and second language learning and writing; examines key issues in writing instruction for adolescent ELLs; connects the existing knowledge base to the standards; and recommends further research to improve the ability of ELLs to meet writing standards.
