This class provided me with more tools to use to understand and work with ELL students. I am hopeful that I can change some of my practices to better work with these students. An interesting and informative book.

This book is very academic. It provides insight on creating and evaluating all types of assessments. It gives many useful ideas on how to make assignments accurate reflections of English Language students' learning.
