Abstract

This document provides a review of general and EL-specific research on early literacy, drawing from both to define a vision for foundational literacy skills instruction for ELs. The document outlines a framework for foundational literacy skills instruction around six principles to ensure that ELs develop the necessary literacy skills to engage with complex text in all subject areas successfully. Finally, the document also presents criteria by which school administrators and teachers can determine whether instructional materials for foundational literacy skills instruction are conducive to meeting the needs of English learners.
