The six-page (tri-fold) guide is structured around the six shifts embodied in the CCSS for English Language Arts:
Increasing reading of informational text/balancing informational and literary texts
Knowledge in the disciplines
Staircase of complexity
Writing from sources
The guide explains each shift, its implications for ELLs, and what is required of teachers. For each shift, the author lists best practices, examples of scaffolding for ELLs, and things that teachers and administrators must to do create conditions that ensure that ELLs succeed.
