“By incorporating the best of digital age learning, the authors inspire practitioners to bring ELL instruction to the next level. ELL Frontiers shows how technology-enhanced instruction can elevate learning from our prior emphasis on ‘covering’ material to ‘uncovering’ English learners’ rich experience and perspective.” —Jane Holmberg, Educational Consultant
