The strategies you need to teach common standards to diverse learners


Realistic and thorough, this teacher-friendly book shows how to help every student, including English Learners, students with disabilities, speakers of nonstandard English, and other struggling learners, meet the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts (ELA). This resource:


  • Familiarizes readers with each of the Common Core’s 32 anchor standards for ELA
  • Outlines the specific skills students need to fulfill each standard
  • Presents a wealth of flexible teaching strategies and tools that build those skills
  • Includes guidance on professional collaboration and co-teaching


Maria G. Dove, Ed.D. is Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the MS TESOL Program in the Division of Education at Molloy College, Rockville Centre, New York, where she teaches courses to preservice and inservice teachers on the research and best practices for developing effective programs and school policies for English learners. Before entering the field of higher education, she worked over thirty years as an English-as-a second language teacher in public school settings (Grades K-12) and in adult English language programs in Nassau County, New York.

In 2010, she received the Outstanding ESL Educator Award from New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (NYS TESOL). She frequently provides professional development throughout the United States for educators on the teaching of diverse students. She also serves as a mentor for new ESL teachers as well as an instructional coach for general-education teachers and literacy specialists. She has published several articles and book chapters on collaborative teaching practices, instructional leadership, and collaborative coaching. Her best-selling co-authored book, Collaboration and Co-Teaching: Strategies for English Learners (2010) is published by Corwin Press, and her co-edited book, Coteaching and Other Collaborative Practices in the EFL/ESL Classroom: Rationale, Research, Reflections, and Recommendations (2012) is published by Information Age Publishing.
